I have two environments one SLX server with 2 Xeon 3.2 GHZ 4 GB ram 6 15K 72.8 GB HDD Raid 5 polling every status 5 Min. SQL is running locally. The average CPU load is in the 30’s memory is high due to SQL but stays at about 85% used.
The second is Four SLX servers that poll Stats every 5 to 10 minutes depending on the node and status every 5 min.
5968 Nodes Interfaces 8 Interfaces Volumes 16 Volumes
The three additional pollers are 2 way Xeon at 2.93 With 2 GB RAM. These boxes average between 20 and 50 % CPU utilization. The main poller is a 4 way Xeon 2.93 with 4 GB ram (It runs NetFlow for over 2000 interfaces also). SQL is running on the corporate Cluster and the DB is on the SAN. This box averages 55% CPU utilization and about 2 GB of memory used.
6533 Nodes Interfaces 14399 Interfaces Volumes 4496 Volumes
2070 Nodes - 3252 Interfaces - Volumes 41 Volumes
Quad-core Xeon 64-bit server (2.66GHz), Win2K3 server (32-bit) w/ 4Gb RAM. Separate Enterprise SQL Server. Separate Web Server.
Polling - 120 sec., statistics - 10 min. Nothing bumped up in polling.
Average CPU load, about 30%. 67% physical memory, 36% VM...
Rarely have any problems...
Wow...and I thought we had alot of nodes. Thanks for the info, guys. Anyone else?
Here's what we have currently, but we are awaiting final approval for a project to upgrade all components and expand the instance to accommodate approximately an additional 8,000 elements.
NPM Host Server = Dual 3.2 GHz Xeon, 4 GB RAM, Win 2003 Server
3 Additional Polling Engines = Single 2.4 GHz Opteron, 1 GB RAM, Win 2003 Server (per VM guest)
SQL Server = Dual Quad-Core 2.33 GHz Xeon, 16 GB RAM, Win 2003 Server (64-bit), SQL Server 2005 (64-bit)
Network Elements = 13,856
Nodes = 2,410
Interfaces = 11,144
Volumes = 302
Nodes = 2 Min
Interfaces = 2 Min
Volumes = 5 Min
Rediscovery = 60 Min
Nodes = 5 Min
Interfaces = 5 Min
Volumes = 60 Min
Detail = 30 Days
Hourly = 180 Days
Daily = 1,095 Days
Update...running SL2000. SQL 2005 DB is running on dedicated Quad-Core Xeon 2Ghz w/ 4GB RAM. Raid 1(OS) & Raid 10(DB).
841 Nodes, 1238 Interfaces, 505 Volumes
Node Status: 60 Seconds (95% of my nodes)
Remaining Nodes: 300 Seconds (5%)
Interfaces Status: 45 seconds
Volumes Status: 300 Seconds
See my Sig file below for Orion specs.
Same here...see below.
