I need some help concerning the Loki storage.
I cannot use a cloud solution to store logs coming from Promtail instances. The logs need to be stored internally.
Until now I have been using the Loki filesystem but I feel like it’s slow and not reliable to store the logs.
Are there other alternatives I can use? How much slower is the filesystem compared to the cloud solutions?
Is it normal it feels slow and not efficient when using the filesystem? For example, as soon as I start querying longer time ranges (past 90 days), it uses a lot of memory and CPU on the server running Loki and it even crashed a few times. I have about 500MB of logs going to Loki.
Thank you for your help
