This section describes the host system requirements for the vCenter Hypericserver and vCenter Hypericdatabase, assuming that the database runs on a different host than the server.

This section describes the host system requirements for the vCenter Hypericserver and vCenter Hypericdatabase, assuming that the database runs on a different host than the server.

vCenter Hyperic supports only one server on a host. The host must have a static IP address for server communications.

vCenter Hyperic supports only one agent on a host.

If you will manage more more than 100 platforms, run the database on a dedicated host, rather than on the same machine as the server.

In the following table:

Medium is 50 to 500 managed platforms, or 5000-30000 managed resources.

Large is 500 to 2,000 managed platforms, or more than 30,000 managed resources.
