The Collector server is a Windows-based physical or virtual machine on which the Veeam VMware Collector component is installed. The Collector agentlessly gathers data from VMware systems, and re-publishes the data to the Operations Manager.
Before you install the Collector, make sure the machine where the Veeam VMware Collector component will be deployed meets the following system requirements:
CPU: minimum 4 cores processor. Using faster multi-core processors improves data processing performance.
Memory: 4 GB RAM (minimum). For maximum scalability and performance, 6GB RAM is recommended.
Hard disk space: minimum 2GB is required for .NET Framework installation, binaries and logfiles.
Both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the operating systems are supported.
