gzip compress messages sent to elasticsearch?

Postby semicontinuity » Thu Aug 13, 2015 12:42 pm

It's not stated in the documentation, and I assume such feature does not exist.
We are sending lots of data to elasticsearch, and gzipping them would help a lot, because log data compresses well.
It seems that ES accepts gzipped POSTs (having Content-Encoding: gzip).
Could you add compression to rsyslog elasticsearch plugin, please?
