hello there,

  1. most of the times between 1% -2% CPU and low memory usage
  2. I don think there is such a configuration, you can however limit it on the OS (Windows or *nix) side

hope it helps

1 What is the typical CPU & Memory consumption of Splunk Forwarder?
- It really varies based on what you monitor. Monitoring databases, hadoop, etc, can be taxing...

2 Can we set the limit on CPU & Memory utilization by Splunk Forwarder?
- Unfortunately, Splunk lacks hadoop like queues and features to constrain resources.
