Getting Data In

sizing cluster

Path Finder

Good afternoon

   I know that there is official information regarding the maximum number of concurrent searches, scheduled searches, according to the number of CPUs and servers that the cluster has.

   Could someone help clarify these values for me, if I currently have 6 indexer with 36 cores each and 6 search head with 28 physical cores.

  I know that apparently the values for the scheduled searches would take 50% of these values.

  Your support is appreciated.

The driving factor is the number of SH cores. The indexers will do whatever the SHs tell them to do, plus they need extra capacity to index new data.

If this reply helps you, Karma would be appreciated.
