The K1000 Virtual Appliance is configured, by default, to utilize 2 vCPUs and 4 GB of memory (this is also the minimum system requirement for the K1000). However, this minimum specification is only designed for the average customer up to 1000 managed devices. For larger implementations, more resources are required.
This chart below lists the recommended vCPU, RAM and NIC specifications based on managed device count (i.e. client systems with a K1000 agent installed). This is only a general guideline, as the results can vary widely based on how the K1000 is configured. It’s possible to have less then 1000 managed devices, for example, and require more than 4 GB of memory. Details about the K1000’s performance are available in Settings > Logs, then click System Performance in the drop-down menu.
|Managed Device Count||Recommended VM Resources||Network interface|
|0 - 1000||2 vCPU & 4 GB RAM||1 Gigabit|
|1000 - 2000||4 vCPU & 8 GB RAM||1 Gigabit|
|2000 - 4000||8 vCPU & 16 GB RAM||1 Gigabit|
|4000 - 8000||16 vCPU & 32 GB RAM||1 Gigabit|
|8000 - 16000||24 vCPU & 64 GB RAM||10 Gigabit|
