for my paper around elasticsearch I have to find out how much diskspace elasticsearch would need in a large company so save all log lines.
I counted the amount of loglines so now all i need is an average size/element.
I ran the elastic stack on a testserver and to find the average I used following command:
curl -XGET 'http://localhost:9200/_nodes/stats'
I got that I had 3502 elements and they took 1.968.548 bytes.
This means an average element takes 562bytes. I think thats wrong but I don't know what I did wrong.
Someone any idea of there average size or how I can find it?
