Observed that while doing initial index build, index disk size goes high and then settles down after some time.
For a test of 500M docs, single index build-
5.1.1-5723 takes maximum of 40GB space, whereas 5.1.2-6022(and vulcan, alice) takes ~100GB space at peak.
Also observed that higher percentage of fragmentation while initial index build.
