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.
