How to find how much storage is used from logs?


I have a index which would return logs. I would like to know how much storage is used for logs in a specific time range. How could I write the query or do this from UI? Thanks.

There is no log that contains that information. The closest you can get is the dbinspect command.

| dbinspect index=foo | stats sum(sizeOnDiskMB) as DiskMB

The command looks at buckets rather than events so the storage size given may include data outside the specified time range.

If this reply helps you, Karma would be appreciated.
