Ie, does it use more storage for the same data as before, same, or less? we currently have 750GB so I really don’t want it to use much more
I would say an increase in 5-8% of disk usage with the feature enabled.
It will use more because the index is kept on disk separately. How much depends on your schema, your shard duration and a number of factors. The best thing to do at this point is to test to see how it looks. It shouldn’t be a significant increase overall, but there will be some sort of increase.
thnx! will have to test it then
