Overview

How do I determine the right amount of CPU/MEM for my NTA Flow Storage Database?

 

Environment

  • NTA 4.x

Detail

Type the following line into the command prompt on all of your pollers (during business hours to capture the higher load):

typeperf "\SolarWinds NetFlow Averages\PDUs Processed per second" -sc 1

Note: The value returned by the command describes the average Flow/sec for the poller over the last 5 minutes.

If the total count from all pollers is less than 5k, we recommend that you have a minimum of 4 cores @ 3 GHz CPU, and 8-16GB of RAM. If the number is bigger than 5k, we recommend 8 cores @ 3 GHz CPU and 16-32GB of RAM.
