Installed Collector Requirements

Hardware platform

  • Single core, 512MB RAM
  • 8GB disk space

Memory guidelines

The minimum memory requirement for an installed collector is 128MB, but depending on the OS running on the machine, and whether the machine is 32 bit or 64 bit, a collector may require a significantly higher amount of memory. In particular, if you are using centralized collection, additional memory is required. It's a good idea to have 256MB to 512MB available in case it's needed.

Each collector outputs logs in the /InstallationDirectory/logs/ directory. The log file that provides the most information about memory issues is named collector.log. You can review the log for any memory errors.

For information about increasing collector memory and monitoring collector logs, see Increase Collector Memory.
