I am running Elastic App Search on https://cloud.elastic.co/ (GCP). I have about 40000 documents and I have multiple deployments with these same sets of documents. What I have noticed is that the disk usage is very different between these deployments. For example in the deployment that I have been running for months, it is:
GCP.DATA.HIGHCPU.1 Disk allocation = 13.31 GB
And in the new deployment, started recently with the same documents, it is:
GCP.DATA.HIGHCPU.1 Disk allocation = 402 MB
I do have some small technical differences between these clusters, but they shouldn't justify such a big difference, I guess. My main suspicion is that some sort of logging or automatic snapshotting is taking up all the space.
For example, I know that some of the logs are going into ".app-search-app-logs-loco_togo_production*". Is there a way to check how much space it is taking? I'd also appreciate any other suggestions on how to investigate the disk usage in my Elastic Cloud environment.
