CPU and RAM requirements are a recommendation only. Customer specific needs may vary based on the size of documents, refresh frequency and types of search/visualization needs.
Note: Please don't exceed 31GB while allocating RAM, as there is a limitation till 31GB with Elasticsearch.

To update the memory allocation when running using the startSearchBlox command or service in Windows, edit the start.ini file within the SearchBloxServer folder.

-Xmx8g
-Xms8g

or change to 16g when you have at least a 32GB server.

-Xmx16g
-Xms16g

To update the memory allocation of elasticsearch please go to ..\elasticsearch\config\jvm.options and give xms and xmx value in line nos 22 and 23 as below
-Xmx8g
-Xms8g

Disk Space Requirements

The server's disk space should be at least twice the size of the data that is to be indexed. That is if 1 GB data is to be indexed then the disk space should be at least 2GB.
