EVE-NG baremetal server specs

Post by ebs2010 » Mon Apr 16, 2018 2:34 am

Hi Team,

I'm trying to set up the lab using eve-ng on top of baremetal server and would like to know server specs for multi-user environment as a part of server spec capacity planning. As we cannot get all resources as much as we want, it would be great if you could let me know number of cores, CPU speeds or family, memory, # of users and instances which you are running daily on your server.

The MINIMUM setup that I'm thinking of right now...

1. 2 Cores
2. Intel Xeon E5 v4
3. Memory : 256GB
4. 10~20 users
5. at least 4 instances of IOS/vMX/XRv
6. eve-ng pro license :)

Thanks in advance.

64 Gb of RAM is more than enough, you can always add another 64 if your images are silent

1. I think you thought sockets, then definitely go for x2 CPU
2. v3 or v4 series is very OK decision of E5-26XX
3. Depends what do you plan on it and how heavy labs expected to be, I would say 256G is perfect but 128 as well would be ok
4. Again question what labs expected to run per user? How many nodes, How heavy? Like CSRs, or security nodes?
5. Each of such instance need calculate CPU and RAM summary used per lab.
example, x4 XRv would need x4 vCPU and 12G RAM for one lab. IOL nodes are very light, and eat approx 0.2 vCPU each.
For such EVE running, and 10 Students you will need;
x40 vCPU server and 128G RAM min !!!
6. PRO has option as Learning centre edition, with additional user roles.

Thank you for suggestion, mkorn and UD.

UD,

Rather than user roles, I'd like to maximize the number of users.....Can we discuss a bit further on this separately?

Cheers
