Crowdstrike FDR data volumes
According to CrowdStrike "the amount of data can vary considerably from one environment to another." On average, environments might see this much compressed data per day:
- Windows hosts: 2.5 MB per host
- macOS hosts: 2.5 MB per host
- Linux hosts: 8-10 MB per host.
- Every megabyte of archived data in .gz files stored in an S3 bucket and consumed into Splunk index results in about 10MB of Splunk index increase. This ratio is approximate and can vary depending on the configured environment and event filtering.
