ELK CPU Issues. After Install CPU hits 100% ( 4 Core )

October 23, 2014 1.3k views

Dear All,

We used already all the tutorials that are out there for the ELK setup ( ElasticSearch, Logstash, Kibana ) After this setup we would like to transfer these to DigitalOcean.
After installing the software as per these tutorial - java process (logstash) consumes > 100% CPU (for 2 core container).

Why does it consume that much for logging literally couple events per minute?
We are using VMWare to host it ( internal )
And ofcourse all the right versions.

Any help would be great, because we dont know what to do anymore..

Be the first one to answer this question.
