Viewing the appliance specification

From the user interface, you can view the appliance specification table, which displays the amount of CPU, RAM, SWAP, and DISK resources used by various classes of appliance deployments (such as Proof of Concept, Baseline, Datacentre, and Consolidated Enterprise).

To view the appliance specification:

  1. From the main menu, click the Administration icon.
    The Administration page opens.
  2. In the Appliance section, select Configuration > Identification.
    The Appliance Configuration page displays the following sections:
    • Appliance
    • Support
    • Software
    • Hardware

At the bottom of the Hardware section, the application specification table displays the number of discovered OS instances and the amount of processor, memory, swap space, and filesystem resources detected. Also displayed is the threshold value of these parameters for each class of deployment.

This screen illustrates the appliance specification page on a standalone appliance.

If the appliance does not have sufficient resources for one or more classes of appliance deployment, the following types of messages are displayed:

  • Message at the top of the application specification table—Specifies which resources do not meet the minimum resource specification. For example, if sufficient resource is not available for DISK, the warning message Below minimum specification (Disk Capacity) is displayed.
  • Warning message at the bottom of the application specification table—Specifies that the appliance has insufficient resources and points to the documentation link for information about hardware specifications.

In the application specification table, the classes of the appliance deployment that do not meet the minimum hardware specification are highlighted in red. The classes of appliance deployment that meet or exceed the respective minimum hardware specification are highlighted in green.

See the Sizing guidelines for virtual appliances section for more information about classes of appliance deployment and related topics.

In a cluster, the appliance specification table is not shown.
