Fuel Master node hardware requirements

Fuel Master node hardware requirementsΒΆ

When planning hardware for the Fuel Master node, verify that your hardware meets the following minimum requirements:

For a production environment:

  • Quad-core CPU
  • 4 GB RAM
  • 10 Gigabit network port
  • Disk size depends on the number of deployed nodes. All nodes send logs to the Fuel Master node using rsyslog. During installation, Fuel creates a separate partition for /var to store the remote logs and allocates 40% of the disk size to it. Our recommendation for the remote logs partition is 20 GB per node. If you deploy 10 nodes with Fuel, you need to have a (20 x 10) x 2.5 = 500 GB disk for the Fuel Master node.
  • IPMI access through an independent management network

For a testing environment:

  • Dual-core CPU
  • 2 GB RAM
  • 1 Gigabit network port
  • 50 GB disk
  • Physical console access
