RAM usage at 95% should I stop forwarding logs?


#1

I am still new to DNIF and getting ready to take a class for the same in a few weeks, although I have noticed that my DNIF instance is constantly at 95% memory utilization and I’m still forwarding log feeds. Is this something to be concerned about?

High memory usage is not an issue. The primary indicator of a RAM issue is swap usage. If you are seeing it consistently using more than a few percentage points of swap space, then there is likely an issue.

Thanks @Stephanie I think my instance is able to sustain the current log events per second, in any other case, i think increasing RAM would make more sense for my peace of mind :joy::joy:
