I might be wrong but using Redis you can't store more than your actual RAM capacity

Hope this helps,

Subject: [Bro] logger large memory usage

Hey all,

I`m running a bro cluster in 10G network, writing logs to redis server directly use plugins,  when the cluster is running, the memory usage of the logger has been growing larger and larger(hundreds of Gb), seems like the logger cannot handle the huge number of the log messages, so the question is what`s the processing capacity of the logger? In my case, 25000 msgs/sec to redis. And why not use more loggers in one cluster but only one?

Any insight would be helpful.
