Checking memory and CPU

For the following validations, log in to the candidate host as root or as a user with superuser privileges. Determine whether the available memory and swap is sufficient:

  1. Display the available memory:
    free -h
  2. Compare the available memory with the amount required for the Analytics server. For specifics, refer to your Zenoss Professional Services architecture document. The required minimum is 8GB.
  3. Check the number of cores. The easiest way to do this is to execute top, then press 1 and note the number of CPU cores present. For specifics, refer to your Zenoss Professional Services architecture document. The required minimum is 8 cores.
