EKS deployment sizing


we currently deploy Dremio in EKS cluster and I have a few questions on best practices when it comes to choosing the instance types for data plane nodes.

Documentation Dremio suggests 8 core and 16 GB of memory for coordinator nodes and 4 core, 16 GB of memory for executor nodes. Do you have any recommendation in terms which instance types are best suited. We are currently using m5a, but was wondering, if you have any experience to share both for coordinator and executor.

Cheers, Igor.

Hi @igorsechyn

This depends on the concurrency and type of queries, best is to start somewhere and run a load test, review profiles to see where the bottleneck is, in terms of IO/CPU/Memory and adjust
