The VDR on-premises component was deployed as a Virtual Appliance into the same VMware cluster where the VMS and CV workloads were running. The VM specifications we used for the VDR virtual appliance are:
- 4 x CPU
- 8 GB Memory
48 GB Disk
Throughout the complete duration of our testing, the maximum CPU utilization of the VDR appliance was <10% of the allocated 4 vCPU cycles. Our largest test configuration required VDR to simultaneously manage scans of 79 total servers and devices. We believe that the VDR appliance CPU utilization scales approximately linearly as the device counts increase and therefore expect that the VM resources specified above could handle hundreds more devices.
