Moloch – CPU, RAM and HDD usage

  • Author : Tomáš Mokoš, Marek Brodec

Considering the fact that the formulas that we used to calculate for how many days can Moloch archive network traffic and what hardware should we use were only approximate, we have decided to measure some statistics to help us clear up these values.

From the Elasticsearch node quantity calculation formula: ¼ * [average network traffic in Gbit/s] * [number of days to be archived], we get that at 2 Mbit/s, one node should suffice.
