Determining The Hardware Needed for Scaling Time Series Usage

TLDR A sought advice on the hardware needed to scale up Time Series usage. Kishore Nallan recommended 2.5x disk data size for memory, with CPU dependant on data updates and query concurrency.

What’s a good rule of thumb for knowing how many machines / cpus / ram we need for scaling up TS usage? I know it’s a bit of a vague question and it depends on multiple factors such as length of query, etc, but any kind of wisdom would be appreciated

Hi Azib. Roughly 2.5x memory requirement for the size of data on disk. CPU will largely depend on how often you update the data and query concurrency.
