Master Node minimum requirements


does anyone has experience with the Master Node for a cluster with two peers?
The question is: what are the minimum hardware requirements? Have I to consider the Master Node like a basically Search Head?

Thank you.

Hello Cris,
Please find suggested hardware requirements for Splunk:

You can configure your master node as the search head and other peers as indexers. All three can be considered as your cluster with 1 Search Head and 2 indexer.
