XorMon NG deployment

Installation methods

Only Linux x86/ppc is supported as a hosting platform


Sizing

Start with this setup (for monitoring up to 5000 VMs and 20 storage devices):
  • 6 vCPUs
  • 24GB RAM
  • 200GB disk space

If you already using our 1st generation tools XorMon Original, LPAR2RRD and STOR2RRD then use for device connection already created 'lpar2rrd/stor2rrd' user accounts on your monitored devices. You do need to create special user account 'xormon' for XorMon NG.
