Updated June 7th, 2016
The following table lists the minimum hardware requirements for the NTA Flow Storage Database which is used for storing flow data in SolarWinds NTA.
|CPU||3 GHz or faster |
Evaluation requires 2 CPUs
Production environments require 4 CPUs or more (4 - 16 CPUs)
|RAM||Evaluation requires 8 GB or more |
Production environments require 16 GB or more (16 - 128 GB)
To ensure optimal performance, you should increase RAM together with the database size.
|Hard drive space|| |
20 GB on 7200 RPM disk or more
NTFS file system required
With the default 30-day retention period and default top talker optimization, you should plan at least 8 GB of additional storage capacity per sustained 1000 flows per second. However, the required hard drive space strongly depends on your flow traffic, and SolarWinds recommends you provide more space accordingly.
The only RAID configurations that should be used with SolarWinds NTA are 0 or 1+0. Other RAID or SAN configurations are not recommended, as they can result in data loss and significantly decreased performance.
64-bit operating system: Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 SP2 and later
|.NET Framework|| |
If it is not already installed, .Net Framework auto-installs with the SolarWinds NTA Flow Storage Database.
