Disk space for vRealize Operations Manager is not driven solely by how much space the application needs in order to successfully install. In addition, you must consider data collection and retention requirements, which might vary from site to site.

The default disk requirement for a new, single-node cluster is 250 GB. Thereafter, one approach to prevent disk capacity shortages is by using vRealize Operations Manager for self monitoring and by adding disk or data nodes as needed.

When you import an earlier vCenter Operations Manager deployment into this version, the product reports the disk space that you need before you can successfully import the earlier deployment.

vRealize Operations Manager is supported for installation on the following Linux versions.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 6, starting with version 6.5
