Minimum server/VM requirement for NSO

Hi,

What is the minimum server/VM/OS requirement for NSO to run (for a POC in customer lab)?

I understand you need Linux (or OSX). However, what is the minimum recommended specs like memory and diskspace?

How about Linux distribution, what are the minimum software packages required besides Java?  I think JDK is required and not only JRE?

If I install a Linux VM, e.g. Ubuntu Server, what option/packages do I need?

I would like to be able to specify the server/VM requirements towards the customer so they can provide it in their lab.

On Ubuntu 14.04 I had to install following manually (so that I could compile service packages) :-

  1. erlang : sudo apt-get install erlang
  2. ant : sudo apt-get install ant
  3. openjdk-7-jdk : sudo apt-get install openjdk-7-jdk

We usually give 4GB RAM + 20 GB HDD for the linux vm hosting NCS. It can vary based on your use-case.

Thanks,

Ajay

Dave, there is a document available on NCS DevNet that describes the server dimensioning.
