Hi All,

 

I was looking for any specific recommendations for virtualization requirements for installing ATA Center 1.9?  I have read about disabling memory management such as VMWare ballooning, but are there any other recommendations such as for NICs, CPU management etc.?

 

Many thanks

 

Rafael.

Most of the data is here:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/advanced-threat-analytics/ata-capacity-planning

For memory, dynamic memory should be off, For CPU - you need to have dedicated cores, if the cores would get effectively shared,  you might get a perf issue. also, it's best to turn off hyper threading,

and make sure power plan is high perf.

Also, for nics, notice the TSO issue mentioned here:
