Users

Users are the individuals in ChaosSearch who will be indexing logs and performing queries on the indexes in Kibana.

Each ChaosSearch account is provisioned with enough capacity to index and search the data indexing volume you've selected. Within that amount of compute users will have the ability to query and do analytics.

Users created with different profiles by the Admin user are allocated a percentage of the overall capacity for these operations when performing queries. If excess capacity is available at execution time with no other concurrent queries active ChaosSearch will allow User profiles to burst above these percentages.

  • Small - 25%
  • Medium - 50%
  • Large - 75%
