Indices creation using gzip_lines codec

If I am using Gzip_lines codec plugin for importing .gz files....then will it affect the size of indices created???

Not sure I fully get the question but I don't think it will.

Generally we are importing .log files but due to space constrained we can directly import .gz file into elasticsearch. Now if we are creating indices using .gz files then indices size aren't affected along with this does the size of indices is larger than size of log files???

At the end of the day, whatever the source was, every single line of log will end up as a JSON document.
So it won't change the index size.
