System Requirements

Sentry Software recommends having at minimum, per instance of PATROL Agent and a Sentry KM:

  • 2 CPU cores
  • 4 GB of RAM

On a system configured for remote monitoring, with both a PATROL Agent and a Sentry KM installed, 4 CPU cores and 8 GB of RAM would be the recommended specifications for optimal performance.

This may need to be increased, depending on the number of other KMs loaded/running at the same time, additional PATROL Agents running on the same system, and the size of the environment.

Increasing the Java Collection Hub Maximum Heap Size

If your system is configured as above, but the KM runs out of memory without reaching the physical limit, then you may need to configure the Collection Hub Heap Size Maximum, as detailed in KB 1240.
