I'm still hopping to find some info on server sizing

#1 Post by Rno » Wed Jan 30, 2019 9:38 am

I'm still hopping that with Cacti 1.2x there will be any sizing indication.
I have something like:
Hosts 1235
Graphs 18730
Data Sources Script/Command: 84
SNMP: 1223
SNMP Query: 26363
Script Query: 2
Script Query - Script Server: 4
Total: 27676

But will increase of about 20 to 50%
And that's my current cacti 0.8.8, I know that 1.2 is very very more demanding in resource of any kind. but since I have no official sizing guideline, it's hard to go for it.

So anyone able do give some information ?
By the way it will be on a VM style.

Thanks in advance,
CentOS
Production
Cacti 0.8.8h
Spine 0.8.8h
PIA 3.1
Aggregate 0.75
Monitor 1.3
Settings 0.71
Weathermap 0.98
Thold 0.5
rrdclean 0.41

Own plugin: LinkDiscovery 0.45, Map 0.36

monitor 2.3.5
php 7.2.11

Three things:

1) Flash disk
2) Good amount of memory
3) Cores

Any good dual socket with 32gb or more of memory and flash (PCIe or SSD) is enough to monitor thousands of devices. Of course dual power supplies and bonded NICs are important too.
Before history, there was a paradise, now dust.
