Metricbeat Index Size Recommendation


In our setup, Metricbeat (6.2.4) index is growing day by day - it has reached to ~200GB per day. I got some idea from somehwhere that efficient size of single index should be less than 50G. Could someone please share document on it.


We suggest shards themselves be no larger than 50GB. The index can be larger though.

Hi Warkolm,
Thanks for prompt reply.
Could you please share document on the recommendation and how to do changes in shards sizing.
