Use this table to size your SolarWinds environment.
Deployment size is impacted by throughput of events and performance degradation.
Use the largest sizing that reflects your environment. For example, if you are running a small deployment and begin to notice performance degradation at 300 nodes, move to a medium deployment. As the number of nodes and data traffic changes over time, move to a deployment that supports your enterprise.
The hard drives are defined when the virtual appliance host is created. Installing LEM in a SAN is preferred, but high-speed hard drives (such as SSD drives) are required for high-end deployments.
When using original log (raw) storage, increase your CPU and memory resources by 50%. See your hypervisor documentation for more information.
