A shard is a basic read and write unit in each logstore. You can specify the number of shards in each logstore. Each shard has certain service capabilities:

  • Write:5MB/s
  • Read:10MB/s

When writing data into a shard, you must specify the shard. When reading data, you can use the Load-Balance mode. Load-Balance automatically performs balance based on the background system load, to ensure high write availability.

Example of the complete resource:

Parameter Name Type Required or Not Description
shardID int Yes The unique ID of shard in the logstore, which is automatically generated by the system and whose type is integer.
