NNM iSPIs might require additional hardware beyond what NNMi requires. If youintend to run any of the NNM iSPIs, review each iSPI support matrix before determining the hardware requirements for your environment.The following table describes tiers of managed network environments and the hardware requirements for supporting these tiers. The values stated here are approximate and reflect levelstested by HP. If you have a particularly

complex environment, you might want to provision more powerful hardware as indicated by the next higher tier. The number of currentlydiscovered nodes and polled interfaces is displayed in the NNMi console Help System Information window. All polled counts in the tables below reflect both performance and faultpolling. Managed environments larger than these tiers are not supported without additional HP approval.

To view discovered object counts and polled object counts, see the Database and State Poller tabs in the Help System Information window. 2 Minimum of 2.5GHz for x64 and 1.4GHz for IPF or RISC. 3 If you are running additional applications, increase resources appropriately. (For example, when the Network Performance Server (NPS) component of an NNM iSPI Performance isinstalled on the same system as NNMi, the NPS uses half of the system RAM, and NNMi plus other products must fit into the other half, requiring at least double the amount of RAMstated here.) If you are planning to use any of the NNM iSPI Performance products (NNM iSPI Performance for Metrics, NNM iSPI Performance for Traffic, or NNM iSPI Performance for Quality Assurance) and are managing at the Large tier or above, it is recommended that the Network Performance Server (NPS) component of the NNM iSPI Performance products beinstalled on a separate server from NNMi. 4 These recommendations are based on the environment size and polled object counts stated in this table. Polling fewer of a given object type might use less Java heap. Polling moreof a given object type might require increased Java heap size as well as HP approval. 5 $NnmInstallDir is configured during installation on Windows ( C:\Program Files (x86) \HP\HP BTO Software \ by default), or on UNIX by creating a symlink to /opt/OV/ . NOTE to NNM 7.xcustomers: /etc/opt/OV/ is no longer used on UNIX except for one configuration file. 6 $NnmDataDir is configured during installation on Windows Server 2003 ( C:\Documents and Settings \All Users\Application Data \HP\HP BTO Software \ by default), or Windows Server 2008 ( C:\ProgramData\HP\HP BTO Software\ by default), or on UNIX by creating a symlink to /var/opt/OV/ .
