Understanding memory usage in NXLog

Understanding how NXLog allocates memory is essential to optimize your configuration for performance and utilize system resources efficiently. NXLog is designed for high-performance log collection and processing and is optimized to use system resources efficiently. However, various external factors affect how NXLog uses system resources, including memory, which can impact NXLog’s and its host’s performance. Misconfiguration is the leading factor we see when troubleshooting excessive memory consumption. Therefore, in this blog post, we will dive deeper into how NXLog allocates memory to help you create the optimal configuration for your system or determine whether high memory usage results from a misconfiguration.
