Is there any technical limitation to the number of indexes an indexer cluster can host?

Hello,

Is there any technical limitation to the number of indexes an indexer cluster can host?
We are building a 3-node cluster and we are planning to have between 50 and 100 indexes.

Regards.

Hi,

A customer of my company has round about 70 indexes on a single node splunk enterprise indexer, without index numbers indicated problems. Almost the same count on a Cluster too.
Think 100 for a Cluster shouldn't be a problem.
Maybe you have to configure the size. Every index has in standard config a size of 500 GB.

Kind Regards
Darth
