SIM server configuration

Hi,

Not sure if this is a right forum for this question. Pl. redirect me if this is not.

I have a customer who has the following requirement.

No. of managed nodes: 2000 at present, would scale to 5000 in 1-2 years time frame.

This customer has at his disposal DL380 Prolient with 2 CPU and 2GB RAM. He intends to upgrade the server to 4 CPU and 4GB RAM as and when he has more managed nodes.

Will this suite his current and future requirement?

Also, this customer is interested in SIM installation on Redhat Linux Enterprise edition.

Request expert advice on this requirement.

Regards,
Srinivas

Re: SIM server configuration

Yes, Is DL380 with 2CPU and 2GB RAM sufficient for the current (2000 managed nodes) requirement?

The SIM sizer tool is suggesting only DL585 with 8GB RAM and 4 CPUs.

Re: SIM server configuration

Do you foresee any performance issues if managed nodes increase to around 5000?

What server upgrade do you recommend?

Re: SIM server configuration

YEs you will because the server will become heavy with all the log, i did a complet clean up and MENnnn !!did it do a difference ,imagine running a DL 360 for 5000 node ,no WAY!!

Go for a DL 585 G3 with 8 Gb ram
