we're currently planning to setup a PRTG Server XL Instance with roughly 10.000 Sensors (Migrating from different solution), spanning over local and remote sites.
Our planned specs for the Core-Server currently:
Physical Server 16-Core CPU 128GB DDR4 3TB SSD Storage (Raid 1) 2x 1GB Uplink
We have a few questions regarding that:
1. CPU for Core-Server - More cores or higher frequency? (Also AMD or Intel?) 2. How is the load on remote probes compared to the core-server? 3. Can you install all remote probes as virtual servers or should they be physical as well? 4. Should the Storage be optimized for read-, write-heavy or mixed data-input?
