Log Insight 2.0 Configuration Minimums

In addition to configuration maximums, it is important to understand configuration minimums. Again, most of this information is in the official documentation, but is not consolidated in a central location… until now!

UPDATE: Configuration minimums have been added to the Log Insight documentation starting with 3.0. This information may be out of date — please use the official documentation!

Virtual Appliance

  • CPU = 2 – 1 is possible, but high discouraged given how queries are processed in Log Insight
  • Memory = 2 GB (4 GB is recommended at a minimum) – this assumes close to no ingestion (<50 EPS) and minimal queries (<5 alerts and 1 concurrent user)
  • IOPS = 75
  • Storage = 20 GB – if you plan on ingesting messages then you will need way more than this

Log Insight Agent

UPDATE: Added Log Insight agent minimum information.
