Nectus NetFlow collector VM sizing
When selecting specs for Nectus VM that will be used for Netflow collection storage we recommend following specifications:
RAM: Amount of RAM has to be not less that Netflow DB size growth in one week.
Example: Your Netflow storage grows by 10GB every day. Recommended RAM amount is 70GB
CPU: Number of logical cores has to be not less than number of Netflow senders
Example: You have 16 routers sending Netflow data. Nectus creates one thread for each sender so ideal CPU configuration is with number of logical cores not less than 16.
Storage: We only recommend dedicated SSD based storage with minimum 200,000 IOPS rating. We had very good experience with PCI-E Intel Optane SSD.
With recommended specs we should be able to support close to 30Kfps Flow rates
