How many alerts can Kapacitor scale to?

Is there a document or guide on what Kapacitor looks like at scale? Can it handle tens of thousands of alerts?

Does it scale horizontally? If so, how many Kapacitor instances can you add without overwhelming InfluxDB?


“It’s difficult to answer questions about the performance of Kapacitor because the workloads are user-defined. The amount of computation in a task, the frequency and size of the data, and whether it is a batch or stream operation all have an impact on the resources consumed”. I recommend taking a look at this thread.

Also, take a look at SideloadNode.
