Filebeat index

Greetings everyone,

I have a question regarding filebeat index. The scenarios is:

I am transferring Nginx access and error logs from filebeat to my Elasticsearch server. Is the size of filbeat index is equal to the size of access and error log?

Thank you in advance <3

No it won't be.
Elasticsearch creates a number of different data structures to make querying faster, so it may add size. But then it also compresses the data.
