Managing Agents

Small Environment System Requirements

A small collection environment can typically have its storage collection handled by using the StorageCollector agents installed on the embedded Agent Manager that is available on the Foglight Management Server machine. The resource requirements shown below are the minimum needed for collection in a small environment.

8-way 2.4 GHz CPUs — one of the following:

20 GB in total:

Storage:

If using an embedded database repository:

If using an external Database Repository:

Databases must be regularly backed up and maintained to reduce wasted space.

Large Environment System Requirements

A large collection environment requires that the Agent Manager for the Storage Collector agents be installed on a server that is separate from the server running the Management Server. Requirements for both machines are outlined below. Refer to the System Requirements and Platform Support Guide for virtual machine and Agent Manager collection requirements.

4-way 2.4 GHz CPUs — one of the following:

28 GB in total:

If using a built-in embedded Database Repository:

If using an external Database Repository:

4-way 2.4 GHz CPUs — one of the following:

6 GB in total:

30 GB on a RAID device

Databases must be regularly backed up and maintained to reduce wasted space.

Requirements for Agent Managers

Whether you use the embedded Agent Manager or external Agent Managers, you need to make sure that the hosting server meets the supported platform requirements. Agent Managers that are used for Foglight for Storage Management collections must be installed on a server running a supported 64-bit Linux operating system or a supported 64-bit Microsoft Windows operating system.
