Re: ESM 7.0 Patch 2

my favourite line from release  notes is:

When using ESM in distributed correlation mode, the default capacity of internal buffers
that temporarily store incoming events might limit persistence throughput.
If the incoming event rate is greater than 25,000 events per second (EPS), add the following lines to the server.properties file, and then restart the ESM cluster: queue.logger.pre-security-event-persistor.capacity=200000 queue.logger.start-of-flow.capacity=200000

especially in the context of  https://www.microfocus.com/it-it/products/siem-security-information-event-management/overview

With ArcSight ESM 7.0, SOCs gain the agility to expand their cyber security footprint
and respond faster to evolving threats at massive scale—up to 100,000 correlated events per second,
per cluster—as well as solve a wider set of security use cases.

  

so my question to max ingest EPS seems still open...

 

Cheers

Re: ESM 7.0 Patch 2

This is for a distributed environment, isn't it? I'm not sure if it applies to compact mode.

Re: ESM 7.0 Patch 2

yes we are talking about distributed mode, not compact.

Sorry i left out one sentence of the original paragraph

I "corrected" the initial quote to the full quote; this sentence was missing:

that temporarily store incoming events might limit persistence throughput.

Re: ESM 7.0 Patch 2

Hello,

 

I don't want to discuss this topic but the part with distribute environment it's only at the beginning and will not gonna help too much if they will not solve the issue with persistor node.

For sure for those that want to persist more than 30K, this is the only solution but we will see further on.

Best Regards,


Daniel
