Docker vs Virtual Machine - Resource question

Curious…. If I normally build a Virtual machine for Graylog and use say 8 cores and 32 GB of ram…. Does the docker setup need the same horsepower to perform as well?

I notice stuff in the docker image like the Elasticsearch config is Xms and Xmx at 512 mb where I normally set to ½ of system RAM…. Like 16GB

All insight is appreciated

to be honest - crunching numbers need cpu cycles not matter what technology is used on top of that. You need the CPU power to make it work.

Elasticsearch and Graylog is intense in consuming computing resources - you need to have the resources for the amount of work you want to load on the system.
