Single Server Hardware

The following describes hardware and sizing configuration for common Open Manage Network Manager deployments. Before any deployment, administrators should review and understand the different deployment options and requirements. Consider future growth of the network when estimating hardware sizing. You can generally expand modern systems running Open Manage Network Manager by adding more RAM to the host server(s). Selecting expandable hardware may also be critical to future growth. For ease of management, deployments selection best practice is to use the fewest possible servers.

Minimum Hardware

The minimum hardware specification describes what Open Manage Network Manager needs at a minimum. In such minimum installations, traffic flowing from the network to Open Manage Network Manager may exceed the capacity of the hardware. When estimating the size of a deployment, it is important to understand the applications configurations in the target environment. Applications that are typically the most demanding of resources are Traffic Flow Analyzer (TFA), Event Management and Performance Monitoring.

REQUIRED Minimum hardware -- 6GB RAM, dual core CPU, 3.0GHz or better, 200 GB 7200 RPM Disk.


• Standalone installations (Single Server) is supported when high-resource demand applications are used minimally.

RECOMMENDED Minimum hardware: 8GB RAM, quad core CPU (3.0GHz or better), 400 GB 10,000 RPM Disk


• Standalone installations.
