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 This information may be out of date — please […]
I have received many requests for Log Insight configuration maximums. While most of the relevant information is available in the official documentation, there is no central place to reference… until now! UPDATE: Configuration maximums have been added to the Log Insight documentation starting with 3.0. This information may be out of date — please use […]

One of the great improvements in Log Insight 3.0 is around scale and more specifically its ingestion rate, cluster size and retention period. In this post, I would like to discuss this improvement as well as how to properly calculate Log Insight cluster deployments for 3.0.
In Log Insight 2.0 a clustering feature was introduced. This feature made it possible to go above the configuration maximums of a single node, however scale is not the only reason to consider when architecting a Log Insight solution and considering clustering. In this post, I would like to discuss other benefits to leveraging a […]
In Log Insight 2.0 a scale-out feature was introduced. The best practice when using scale-out is to configure an external load balancer in front of the cluster and send all ingestion traffic (i.e. syslog and ingestion API) to the load balancer instead of directly to a node. The reason for this best practice is to […]
