Hardware and Software Configuration Requirements (Distributed Collector)

Hardware and Software Configuration Requirements (Distributed Collector)

Please prepare hardware and software and partition disks by strictly following the configuration requirement. Otherwise, problems, such as installation failures, login failures, or page anomalies, may occur. The recommended hardware is the server delivered along with the eLog. If you use other servers, the hardware configuration conditions must be met.

When the following conditions are met, a single collector exclusively uses the IO:

Peak value: 300 MB/s or higher (at least 50 MB/s for writing the IO and 250 MB/s for reading the IO)

When the following conditions are met, a single collector exclusively uses the IO:

Peak value: 300 MB/s or higher (at least 50 MB/s for writing the IO and 250 MB/s for reading the IO)

NOTE:

The log collector is a disk I/O-intensive application. If the disk I/O performance is insufficient, the log processing performance is compromised.

  1. If there are 24 or less disks, all the disks are in one RAID, and a LUN is assigned to the RAID. The LUN is mounted to /opt/huawei/LogCenterData to store index data, online logs, and dumped logs.
  2. If there are more than 24 but no more than 48 disks, the disks are grouped into two RAIDs, each of which is assigned a LUN. The first LUN (24 disks) is mounted to /opt/huawei/LogCenterData to store index data, online logs, and dumped logs. The second LUN is mounted to /opt/huawei/LogCenterData/DumpedData/data_2 to store dumped logs.
  3. If there are more than 48 but no more than 72 disks, the disks are grouped into three RAIDs, each of which is assigned a LUN. The first LUN (24 disks) is mounted to /opt/huawei/LogCenterData to store index data, online logs, and dumped logs. The second LUN is mounted to /opt/huawei/LogCenterData/DumpedData/data_2 to store dumped logs. The three LUN is mounted to /opt/huawei/LogCenterData/DumpedData/data_3 to store dumped logs
  4. If there are more than 72 but no more than 84 disks, the disks are grouped into four RAIDs, each of which is assigned a LUN. The first LUN (24 disks) is mounted to /opt/huawei/LogCenterData to store index data, online logs, and dumped logs. The second LUN is mounted to /opt/huawei/LogCenterData/DumpedData/data_2 to store dumped logs. The three LUN is mounted to /opt/huawei/LogCenterData/DumpedData/data_3 to store dumped logs. The fourth LUN is mounted to /opt/huawei/LogCenterData/DumpedData/data_4 to store dumped logs.

For the first installation of a collector with a disk array, you are advised to create the /opt/huawei/LogCenterData directory, mount the disk array space to a directory according to the previous table, and install the eLog collector. If you install the eLog collector first, you cannot mount the disk array space to the /opt/huawei/LogCenterData directory because the directory is not empty.

NOTE:

The disk space that you have purchased is estimated based on the common log scale. You are advised to assess the disk space usage in the initial operating stage. If the disk space is insufficient, perform capacity expansion based on the actual log quantity.
