You can scale up the platform cluster to meet the increasing load. Based on the load, you can either scale up by increasing the brick size or creating or expanding a platform cluster. Three
LARGE platform bricks can be connected together to form a platform cluster. If a platform is of
EXTRA LARGE brick size, then you have to scale up by creating a platform cluster.
To decide platform brick size and number of platform bricks, see System Recommendations and Requirements.
Scaling up Scenarios for the Platform Cluster
- Scenario 1 : Your platform is running 5000 VMs and 1.5 million active flows
Convert your platform
LARGE. See Increase the Brick Size of your Setup.
- Scenario 2 : Your platform is running a single
LARGEnode with 9000 VMs and 2 million active flows
Add two more
LARGEbrick nodes to convert into 3-node
LARGEbrick cluster. See Expand Clusters in the vRealize Network Insight User Guide.
- Scenario 3 : Your platform is running a 3-node
LARGEcluster with one or more colletors, 15000 VMs and 4 million active flows.
Convert your existing platform nodes from
EXTRA-LARGE. See Increase the Brick Size of your Setup.
- Scenario 4 : Your platform is running a 3-node
EXTRA-LARGEcluster with one or more colletors, 25000 VMs and 8 million active flows.
Add two more
EXTRA-LARGEbrick nodes to convert into 5-node
Extra-LARGEcluster. See Expand Clusters in the vRealize Network Insight User Guide.
