Installed Collector Requirements

Hardware platform

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

Memory guidelines

The minimum memory requirement for a system where you're going to install a Local 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. It's a good idea to have 256MB to 512MB available in case it's needed.

Each Collector outputs logs in the /[install_dir]/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. If you see any Out of Memory errors in the logs you can increase the memory granted to the Collector.
