Customer asked what would be their bandwidth requirements for the replication between indexers.
Say if the license size per day is 200GB, with compression roughly 50% indexed data stored should be about 100GB.
now they have 2 indexers in the cluster with repfactor of 2 and search factor of 2.
so my calculation is below (not sure if it is correct)
based on Splunk docs the 50% consist of the below:
15% for the rawdata file.
35% for associated index files.
Total rawdata = (100*0.15)* 2 (this is the rep factor) = 30 GB
Total index files = (100*0.35)* 2 (this is the search factor) = 70 GB
So a total of 100GB of data will be replicated.
for the bandwidth calculation of 100GB per day:
(100/86400)*1024*1024 = 1213.63 KB/s
This is what I have come up with so far. Any advise would be appreciated.
Also what happens if it is a multisite cluster..
@493669 Thanks for the quick reply, regarding the sizing I have used this website before.
Sadly however, currently what I need to find out now is the bandwidth requirements for replication of the data not the storage sizing itself. =(
