Getting Data In

Advice on personal experience of data count of data sources per host

Hey all. So my company has recently acquired 200GB added on top of our current licence. We are interested in 3 different log sources and wondering what the data size per day is per host in your experience?

It would be good to know if you have heavily filtered the input or not, but it would be good for scoping if I could have an idea of metrics:
Powershell logs
Sysmon
Winevent logs on users machines

While you may get some useful estimates from other people's experiences, nothing beats estimating using your own data.

Turn on those sources on 1-10 hosts and measure how much your data ingestion increases. Use that figure to extrapolate the total license usage increase for those sources on all hosts.

Totally appreciate the point and I have suggested this but you can understand the complexities to getting this done in a heavily bureaucratic environment. Just at a finger in the air for now so I am interested in what other people's experiences are.
