Log Indexes take up more space on disk than expected in R80 and up Technical Level
Symptoms
  • Log Indexes take up more space on disk than expected
  • Log Indexes need more space than the log files itself
Cause

In rare cases the indexes can use more space than commonly expected. These scenarios are:

  • A high amount of log records are received with very little information per log record. E.g. firewall-only logs on DNS traffic
  • The log records have a high cardinality in sources and destinations
