Splunk Search

About real time search

I want to know about CPU occupation when doing a real-time search.

If I build Splunk in a standalone way, and I configure a real-time search, I think that one of cpu core will be occupied.

But which server's cpu core is occupied by real-time search when configuring distributed search like indexer clustering?
will only cpu core of the search head be occupied? Or, because it is a distributed search, will cpu core of each search peer also be occupied?

Also, if I configured search head clustering, will cpu core of all members be occupied?

I am planning to create large scale configuration for personal use, and planning configure alerts using real time search (rolling window) in the environment, so I want to know how to use cpu core.

I appreciate if someone tell me about it.

In a distributed real-time search, one core for each peer is occupied, but only one core on one search head is used.

Thank you for answer.

you mean that only one core on one search head is used if search is processed in search head clustering?
