XLarge Environment? Contact us
Based on our experience, an XLarge deployment is easier to design with AppMon Support technicians. Open a support ticket with the following information:
- Completed Deployment Sizing -> download here
- Information about the system architecture -> see examples
Failure to provide the requested information results in unnecessary delays in addressing your support call.
The final sizing recommendation usually takes longer than 1 to 2 business days.
After determining that you have an XLarge environment, contact Customer Support by creating a support case.

Minimum process requirements

|22 GB RAM 24 cores1||8 GB RAM 4 cores||16 GB RAM 4 cores||Oracle2 8 GB RAM 4 cores|
1 No virtual cores (Hyper-Threading) for Server size larger than 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
|x64 Linux or Windows 24 cores 32 GB RAM3||1 AppMon Server (22 GB heap)|
|x64 Linux or Windows 24 cores 32 GB RAM3||1 AppMon Memory Analysis server (16 GB heap)|
|x64 Linux or Windows 24 cores 32 GB RAM3||1 Oracle database (8GB heap)|
3 Also available memory options are 64GB and 96GB. With them you'll get 5,000 and 5,500 transactions per second respectevely.
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.
Collector box with multiple instances
|x64 Linux or Windows 12 cores 24 GB RAM||2 AppMon Collectors (8 GB heap each) 1 AppMon Collector for monitoring Plugins (1 GB heap)|
Collector box with single instances
Multiple boxes required for this option.
|x64 Linux or Windows 4+ cores 12 GB RAM||1 AppMon Collectors (8 GB heap)|
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).
