To optimize throughput we originally defaulted the
compression option to
gzip. It is our philosohpy that Vector's defaults
should optimize performance and throughput, but not at the expense of causing
errors. Unfortunately, AWS hosted Elasticsearch does not support compression,
and therefore we've made this feature opt-in.
Upgrading is easy. Add the following if you want to enabled Gzip compression:
[sinks.es]type = "elasticsearch"+ compression = "gzip"
