Hardware requirements to build an ELK cluster with 5000 agents

That is. I need to monitor 5000 servers with metricbeat and I need help to know how many nodes and hardware is recommended.

Thank You!

Presumably, that would depend on how much log output these 5000 servers generate.
1 log line per minute isnt very much.
1 log line per second is noticable

5 log lines per second is "heavy" :slight_smile:

It’s about 5 or more log lines per second :scream:

The only real answer here is to benchmark your workload yourself. It's definitely possible to index over 100,000 log lines per second on a fairly small cluster, but the details very much depend on the workload and the hardware you have available.
