Suggested Hardware for Distributed Installations
The following describes hardware examples for distributed installations. We base these suggestions on average Redcell Synergy use on your managed network. These suggestions include an indication for, Number of Users, Number of devices managed, Traffic Flow Analysis (TFA), Performance Management (PM) and Event Management (EM) as the most demanding elements
Distributed installations consist of separate servers for separate functions within Redcell Synergy. Web Server (WS), Application Server (AS), Mediation Server (MS) and Database server (DB) are on separate hosts. The RAM, CPU and hard drive (HD) sizes for these are indicated below.
1 <2Mbs Internet egress and a 1:1000 sample rate.
2 <10Gbs Internet egress and a 1:1000 sample rate
3 <200 Gbs Internet egress and a 1:1000 sample rate.
4 PM can support 600 inserts per second using a single disk (SSD) Drive. 1 insert = 1 monitored attribute. Expect better performance as you add more drives (and worse performance with slower drives).
5 EM can support a sustained 1200 traps /sec using a single (SSD) drive. Expect better performance as you add more drives (and worse performance with slower drives).
6 Mediation recommendations assume managing <1000 devices per host.
