In the install guide; (I'm reading the 1.0.0. guide published in 10/2014); it states minimal system requirements of 50, 100 and 150GB of Storage. I'm assuming this means the storage available to the appliance needs to be @ least these values/quantities.
However, when I started deploying the appliance, I noticed (just before clicking Finish), that the appliance was going to deploy as a 488GB VM. I did not see an option to change this size (as it is an appliance).
Is this something anyone has heard of? Could I be using an old source of the appliance?
Am I missing something?
The VM Appliance does deploy a ~500G thin provisioned disk
The 50/100/150G numbers are anticipated storage usage for the number of Servers being monitored.
- The appliance is designed to store one year of unaltered data.
I agree that this initial size does seem high given that an initial deployment looks to use <20G of disk space. It is thin provisioned, so not actually consuming that space up front. I will investigate why the initial size is set to 500G and see if we can scale that back, and/or whether it would make sense to allow for resize at time of deployment.
