I am using metricbeat to monitor around 200+ environments, and using system module.
But it is comusing lot of disk space daily it use 10 GB of disk space to store the monitor data.
Can we do any work to make it less as we can see this is large space used have worked on some other monitoring tool also but haven't seen this much space getting used for a monitoring tool.
I did some changes in fields.yml file to change data type from long to float but this also not help much.
Team please help me or suggest what we can do to overcome this. Thank you.
Thank you @stephenb but still wanted to know is there any simple way to directly reduce the disk space as in drop_event or drop_field again it requires someone who should have knowledge of metrics used. Appreciate you help
