Minimum hardware requirements for CPUs, memory, and data disk space for the products. If you install more than one product on a system, the system must meet the total memory and disk space requirements for those products. CPU refers to the number of physical CPU cores and not the number of CPUs that are displayed when hyperthreading is activated.
Note: When VMware Smart Assurance 10.1 is deployed in a bare metal (non-VMware) environment, do not use hyperthreading. When hyperthreading is enabled, the Smart Assurance software runs more slowly and performance is adversely affected.
