Use the following guidelines to determine the hardware resources necessary for a virtual appliance to monitor a given number of device nodes.

NodesHardware Resources
Up to 325 device nodes

1 GB RAM

1 CPU

Up to 1025 device nodes

2 GB RAM

NoteVMware supports fault tolerance on virtual machines with 1 CPU only. Please refer to your vendor's documentation for more information about fault tolerance.

Disk space

The disk space required to monitor a given number of nodes varies according to the device types monitored and the amount of data you want to store. The minimum hard disk size is 18 GB.

To determine whether to add another hard disk, you can view available disk space in the "Storage Settings" display, accessed from the Server Administration Settings option in the System menu. View this display periodically to help determine how quickly the virtual appliance consumes disk space.

NoteTo store large amounts of surveillance data, using a remote repository is recommended.
