Hello Hartkently,

You can get a brief idea about your logging rate and log forwarding rate by issuing the following command:

> debug log-receiver statistics.

As far as allocation of space and sizing is concerned, there are various factors to considered: network topology number of firewalls sending logs, type of traffic and subscriptions (URL etc..).

I believe this document might just be what you are looking for:

I think that the best for You will be creation in Device >Scheduled log export profiles that will export log using ftp/scp and observing in your environment.

My daily traffic log file is about 250MB, other logs are about couple of MB.

Think twice that every your  security policy should have logging enabled or not or logged on session start or maybe only on session end.

With regards
