You size compute resources for vRealize Operations Manager to provide enough resources to run the remote collectors in each ROBO.

Sizing Compute Resources for the Remote Collector Nodes

Unlike the analytics cluster nodes, remote collector nodes have only the collector role. Deploying two remote collector nodes in each region does not increase the capacity for monitored objects.

Design Implication

ROBO-OPS-MON-003

Deploy the standard-size remote collector virtual appliance.

Enables metric collection for the expected number of objects in the ROBO SDDC when at full capacity.

You must provide 4 vCPUs and 8 GB of memory in the consolidated cluster.
