8.3.2

For optimum performance, BlueCat recommends reserving resources in your hypervisor for each specific DNS/DHCP Server and Address Manager VM.

CAUTION:
Exceeding the vCPU and vRAM settings listed below is a breach of BlueCat Networks licensing terms and may result in license penalty fees being owed.
Note:
  • DNS/DHCP Server VM images require 160GB of disk space.
  • Address Manager VM images require 320GB of disk space.
  • DNS/DHCP Server Xen virtual machines only require 40GB of disk space.

The CPU resource reservation is determined by multiplying the number of vCPUs by the clock speed. For example, a DNS/DHCP Server 60 would require 4x 3.0 GHz = 12 GHz = 12,000 MHz.
