2.2 Minimal recommendations per monitor node

  • 3 SUSE Enterprise Storage monitor nodes recommended.

  • 2 GB of RAM per monitor.

  • SSD or fast hard disk in a RAID1 configuration

  • On installations with fewer than seven nodes, these can be hosted on the system disk of the OSD nodes.

  • Nodes should be bare metal, not virtualized, for performance reasons.

  • Mixing OSDs or monitor nodes with the actual workload is not supported.

  • Configurations may vary from, and frequently exceed, these recommendations depending on individual sizing and performance needs.

  • Bonded network interfaces for redundancy.
