Below are the heavy usage Applicare controller sizing guidelines - up to 8000 agents. Do keep in mind sizing does vary depending upon the features utilized and load on monitored applications. Contact Arcturus professional services for environments bigger than this and to ensure your environment is configured correctly to handle the load.
It is recommended to have Applicare controller, Applicare database & Applicare BT Collector/s to be on dedicated machine/s for consistent performance & scalability.
Recording of Key Business Transactions (KBT) data is what takes most of the resources in Applicare. Additional BT Collectors can be added as the number of KBTs grow. A BT collector can collect data from one or many Applicare agents and hence helps in scaling of Applicare environment.
Performance and scalability of Applicare database is critical in overall Applicare performance and scaling.
Applicare Controller & MySQL Database:
- CPU: 36 cores 2.6 GHz or higher
- RAM: 512 GB
- Number of agents supported: up to 8000
- Disk space: 30 TB - this # will vary significantly depending upon the data collected and duration for which data is kept.
Applicare BT Collector:
- CPU: 8 cores 2.5 GHz or higher
- RAM: 8 GB
- Disk space: 5 GB
Applicare Controller, Database and BT Collector can be on the same VM provided VM meets the combined requirements for all.
- Red Hat Enterprise Linux - 6.1 and above
- Windows Server 2016 onwards
HP Linux, Oracle Solaris & Mac OS
