The Veeam VMware Collector component agentlessly gathers data from VMware systems, and re-publishes it for Operations Manager to consume.
Each Collector requires a Windows server meeting the following criteria:
|•||Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 or later. Server 2012 or 2012 R2 is recommended.|
|•||Both virtual machine and physical computer are supported.|
|•||Minimum 4 x 2GHz CPU and 4GB of RAM. More heavily loaded systems will require more.|
|1.||A server dedicated to the Collector role is strongly recommended, especially when monitoring large VMware environments. The above configuration can process the data for between 500 – 1000 virtual machines. Scalability considerations are discussed later in this document. |
|2.||Installing the Veeam VMware Collector on an Ops Mgr Management Server is highly recommended to achieve best performance and scalability.|
