Elastic search bulk size with gzip


#1

I'm using node js elasticsearch library to bulk insert items. I've read in the docs that the recommended bulk size to start from to test performance is 5MB-15MB. But what if I set a header Content-Encoding: gzip, deflate when making the insert? Does it mean in this case 5MB-15MB compressed, or is compression irrelevant here? Thanks.

That recommendation refers to the uncompressed size.
