See this for HW requirement reference for Heavy forwarder: https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/8.2.2/Capacity/Referencehardware#Recommended_hardware_f...

Number of heavy forwarders will depend on lot of parameters, amount of data coming in, Availability requirement, types of app install etc. You can get in touch with your Splunk Engagement manager for getting correct guidance.
