Production system sizing
Unfortunately there is no golden rule for the right sizing of a monitoring system. This depends on the amount of hosts and services you like to monitor.
Please keep in mind that a monitoring system usually will create more I/O than your KVM farm!
It's recommended to use SSD as main storage.
A rough guide:
- 32 GB RAM
- 16 CPU Cores
- 500 GB space
