What are the suggested hardware requirement for an Ubuntu Server hosting Ralph (and its dependencies) only? Need to deploy a VM for that and need to know it, thanks!

@sscarpone89_twitter I think that 2 cores and 4gb of ram should be enough for start (it also depends if you want to keep redis and DB on the same VM)

@mkurek yes, I want to create a VM with all required servers inside (MySQL and redis). How much do you suggest? And what about disk space?

it all depends on your traffic and expected db size (ex. number of servers stored in ralph). 2 CPU, 4 GB of RAM and ~30GB of disk should be totally fine for start (ralph itself has at most few hundreds of MB, our prod DB have at most 1GB as far as i remember, but it's better to allocate some space in case you'll want to store attachments, deployment files etc on this server).

We estimate to start with Ralph as IPAM product only, without exploiting the other features for now. So I think we can start with minimum requirement. Thanks for the kind answers!

@rbuckland hmm i think having the nic as an asset would over complicate things, but not really sure? as to your other question (PCI nic's etc.), that info should be kept in the ethernet>specs section. to me connections, should be kept separate. again, because if i disconnect an ethernet cable and connect it to another switch, i don't want to lose mac address, ip info, etc. that stuff's too valuable. connections should just be a virtual connection between machines to remember where you plugged things in. well, that's just my opinion - i don't think there's really a wrong answer though.
