How can I make sure that this so called
.monitoring-es-6-* will not be so huge or so many at numbers, maybe a logrotation or retention policy. I do not know exactly how come this logs are way bigger than the whole data collected by the logstash.

If someone can give me an option since I have 20 GB real logs, and 20 GB logs from monitoring.

Here are the config options for for monitoring: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/current/monitoring-settings.html

You might be interested to modify the collection interval.
