ElasticSearch find disk space usage

diskspaceelasticsearch

How can I find the amount of disk space that Elastic Search is using for my indexes? I'm currently running it locally and I'm trying to see how much disk space I will need on the VM that I'll be spinning up.

The Elasticsearch way to do this would be to use _cat/shards and look at the store column:

curl -XGET "http://localhost:9200/_cat/shards?v"

Otherwise in Linux to view the space by folder use:

du -hs /myelasticsearch/data/folder

or to view the space by filesystem:

df -h
