Couchbase Memory Utilization


We would like to understand how much memory does Couchbase server uses.
Eg. If a a RHEL 7 VM has 28GB RAM where DATA Service of CB Server is 8GB, There are 7 buckets whose combined memory quota is around 6GB. The data within these buckets is not more than 1GB. Indeed, it has never gone above 1GB. So then what should be the memory utilization by Couchbase.

We noticed 8+ GB memory used by Couchbase OS user and thus we are curious to understand the mem usage.

@pratmeht Every service on a node will have its own memory requirements. Data is just one of those. Index service can consume even more memory than Data if there is a large enough number of indexes. You might find the following Sizing Guideline document section helpful:
