Single instance vs. cluster

Post by randy-ringnalda »

I currently have a single instance Nagios Log Server but unless I keep the indexes pruned it has serious performance issues.

Currently there are 80 hosts but only like or so send a lot of logs to the system.

Would it work better to have a cluster rather than a single instance?

Depending on how powerful your server is, you may want to upgrade it, or alternatively, yes, adding nodes is an option.
Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.

To add on to @jmichaelson 's response, we strongly recommend having at least two instances in a cluster to ensure redundancy and avoid data loss.

To add on even more: ideally in different geographic locations.
