System requirements for Metricbeat

(Luis Zabala) #1


I had installed metricbeat and it is working fine but we saw in all clients that the Average CPU use for Metricbeat client is between 1% or 2%, I was wondering if this behavior is normal or maybe if Elastic has a formal documentation about the systems requirements in the clients to use metricbeat and how it uses the client resources.

How much resources Metricbeat consumes depends on how many things you are monitoring. Also it depends on the size of your machine. Is 1-2% too much for you? We don't have any formal documentation for it as it just depends on too many variables. Best is to try it out on the same machine as you will run it in production with the same config.

Thanks for your answer, I will made some performance test to check how it goes if I enable/disable some feature
