1No virtual cores (Hyper-Threading) for Server size larger that Medium. Minimum 2.6 GHz required.
2 Oracle, DB2 or SQL Server database is highly recommended especially if you want to extend the environment later. For DB hardware requirements, check with the DB provider.

Minimum hardware requirements

Machine/OS Installed components
x64 Linux or Windows 16 cores 16 GB RAM3 1 AppMon Server (16 GB heap) 1 AppMon Memory Analysis Server (16 GB heap)
x64 Linux or Windows 16 cores 16 GB RAM3 1 Oracle database (4GB heap)

3 Also available memory options are 32GB and 64GB.


To improve performance, AppMon always uses the maximum available CPU and memory resources.
If you have more CPU cores or memory than required for the selected size, then AppMon uses them as well.

To ensure the optimal performance of the Collector, a fast hard disk is recommended. As a best practice, use a solid-state disk (SSD) or other fast hard disk (small HD such as 32 GB is sufficient).
