What is the minimum Hardware requirment for Genie?

Hi ,

Can some one confirm what is the minimum Hardware requirement for Genie ?

I am looking to install Genie in my Lab for managing 5 to 10 different variants of CPE.

If someone can recommend the hardware sizing in terms of the CPU , RAM and HDD Requirement.


In my GenieACS 1.2 lab I have vm with 2 cores, 3G Ram, 12G hdd and 7 working cpe.
If I leave debug on for a week or little longer, it takes the whole disk :wink:

We run genie/mongo/redis on a 4 core 2.6ghz vm w/8gb ram and a 50gb disk thats mostly empty. Our uptime is just shy of 5 months, with the only reason for downtime is kernel upgrades. Our 15 minute CPU average is .56, which equates to about half of one CPU.

can you share with us an approximate number of CPEs and what is the periodic inform interval (if enabled)? thank you :slightly_smiling_face:

Max - 10 CPEs

I am planning to keep the inform interval to 300sec.

Thanks ,


sorry, the question was for @akcoder :slightly_smiling_face:
In your case I think the minimum requirements are for the underlying components and system. So for example if you plan to install genie-acs on debian linux, those are: 512Mb RAM, 1GHz pentium, 10GB HDD space, but I think it’s better to have at least 1GB RAM because of mongodb.

Sorry, I cannot share the number of CPEs, but I will say its a multiple of thousands. The inform interval is 1800 seconds (30 minutes) for provisioned CPEs, and 5 seconds for unprovisioned CPEs, of which we currently have 10.
