Required Resources

IPM Virtual Distributed Edition is packaged as an Open Virtual Appliance (OVA) file.

The following resources are required for deploying the IPM Distributed Edition OVA file:


You need to plan to deploy a total of three VMs to support the IPM Virtual Distributed Edition.

  • ESXi Version 6.0 or later

  • VM Hardware Version 11

  • CPUs: 8 per VM

  • Memory: 32 GB per VM*

  • Disk: a minimum of 540 GB (500 GB for general use and 40 GB for swap space) storage per VM, thick provisioned, with 160 MB/sec sustained R/W throughput minimum.

  • Network connectivity to the infrastructure to be monitored.


* If the instance of IPM Virtual Distributed Edition will be used to run the Application Discovery Analytic, consider allocating 64GB RAM to the VM that will become the manager node.
