Limitations of the free version of Graylog

Good afternoon, everyone. Could someone inform me if there is any limitation on receiving logs in the open-source version of Graylog? Is it possible for my server to stop receiving logs due to any such restriction? I’m implementing this solution, but I saw a comment about this, and it got me worried.

1. Describe your incident:
It’s just a question about limitations in the open-source version.

2. Describe your environment:

  • Ubuntu 22.04.2 LTS:

  • Package Version:
    Graylog 4.3

3. How can the community help?
Answering if this limitation exists and what it would be.

Hey @regrocsi

There is no limitations on receiving logs using the free version ( open), if you have a free license I think its 2GB day.

Thank you for interacting and responding to the question. However, I got confused by your response, as it has a double meaning. You stated that there is no limitation in the open-source version, and then you mentioned that if I’m using the open-source version, you believe the limitation is 2GB per day.

I came across a post that makes sense, stating that in the open-source version, there is no inherent limitation. The limitation may occur when I activate plugins from the enterprise version of Graylog. If I do not activate these plugins, there is no limitation. However, if I activate the enterprise plugins and do not perform the activation, the limitation is set to 5GB per day.

Hey @regrocsi

That is kind of , sorta correct.

There is no limitations on receiving logs using the free version ( open).

That is correct , its 2 GB, for a better understanding and reference look here

if you have the enterprise-plugins activated and no licence, Graylog will deactivate the enterprise-features but still let you ingest logs as usual.
