you should take care about:

  • Design your indexes to optimize the searches (do not mix huge proxy logs with small ids logs for ex.)
  • Policy retention in order to make sure that relevant data will be on fast disks
  • have multiple indexers than one big box
  • dedicate Search Head for ES (if others apps will be used)
  • tune datamodel acceleration based on your needs and data.
