Please keep in mind that the more NetFlow you push to Scrutinizer, the more resources the software will consume. Below are the minimum requirements.
(for trial installations)
(for production environments)
|Disks||50 GB IDE or SATA||1+ TB 15k SCSI in a RAID 0 or 10 configuration|
|Processor||Dual Core 2GHz+||Quad Core 2GHz+|
|Operating System||Windows Vista/2008/7||Windows 2008 Server|
It is recommended that users purchase high-end hardware if high NetFlow volume is anticipated. Scrutinizer can handle tens of thousands of flows per second (i.e. over 1 million per minute) if it is running on a robust computer.
A single Scrutinizer collector can handle flows from hundreds of routers and switches and represent several hundred interfaces.
Need a complete flow monitoring solution? Scrutinizer's hardware appliance has been configured for optimal collection and reporting on many flow-based network traffic monitoring technologies like NetFlow, sFlow, IPFIX, jFlow, NetStream and more. The Scrutinizer Appliance comes pre-configured with a complete version of Scrutinizer NetFlow & sFlow Analyzer that will accept flows from unlimited routers and switches.
Scrutinizer's Appliance is built on the following specifications:
