Recommended Machine configuration for ELK stack


(Gaurav Dalvi) #1

Hello All,

Is there any documentation recommending about Machine configuration in order to run Elastic Search and Logstash (One same VM or separate VM )?

I am creating log processing and analysis pipeline for our company. One Instance of Logstash and Elastic Search should safely handle syslog type data from 1500 Network Devices in a region.

I am looking for Machine Configuration like, Memory, CPU , core, HardDisk space etc.

Appreciate your help.

Thanks !
