AWS Alert Logic Threat Manager Instance overprovisioned?
Hello Alert Logic Representative,
Can the instance type for the alert logic managers in our AWS environment can be scaled down? It is currently set as c5.xlarge but it seems to be overprovisioned in our environment. Based on the CPU utilization, the AlertLogic instance can go down to a t4g.large instance.
Please let us know if this is possible.
Hi Philip Whong - thanks for reaching out! We saw that you opened a ticket with our Support team, and I'm glad to see they've gotten back with you on a solution. In case anyone else has this same question, I'm sharing the answer here -
The recommended instance size is based on your anticipated network throughput sent to the appliance, and whether you plan to enable vulnerability scanning. Please review the referenced support articles surrounding Virtual appliance types in AWS
