This topic provides information about the minimum requirements and supported resources for installing the TrueSight IT Data Analytics (or IT Data Analytics) product:
The following table lists the minimum hardware requirements:
Operating systems (64-bit)
|The preceding list is applicable for the product, the target hosts where data resides, and for the standalone Collection Agent that you might install on the target hosts.|
|CPU and memory|
2 CPUs and 4 GB RAM
Note: In a production environment, the minimum requirement would be 8 CPUs and 16 GB RAM for handling a 50-GB to 100-GB volume of data per day and upto four users.
IT Data Analytics
20 GB for installing IT Data Analytics in a single-server deployment. This value includes the amount of space required for some IT Data Analytics application log files that are expected to grow over time. Additionally, this value includes 15 GB required for ensuring data guarantee for the Collection Station component.
Note: If you are operating in a multiple-server deployment, you require 15 GB disk space for every new Collection Station added in your environment.
|For indexing data|
The disk space can vary depending on the following factors:
Disk space required for your environment size can be estimated based on the recommendations described at Sizing and scalability considerations.
Disk space required for the amount of data that you want to index can be estimated as described in the following example.
Example: Disk space required for indexing 20 GB data per day with a default retention period of 7 days is 202 GB. This value includes the amount of disk space required for installing the product.
This value is calculated as 20 GB (data to be indexed) * 7 (retention period) * 1.3 (storage impact) + 20 GB (disk space to install) = 202 GB disk space. For more information, see Sizing drivers and their impact.
|Note: The preceding disk space sizes are for reference purposes only. While calculating the disk space, it is recommended that you add a buffer of 20% to the total size that you arrive at based on the preceding estimates.|
|Standalone Collection Agent|
2 GB for installing the standalone Collection Agent.
This value includes the amount of space required for some IT Data Analytics application log files.
The following table lists the minimum software requirements:
