BIG-IQ Centralized Management
Use this process to estimate the number of DCDs that you need to collect and display more than one kind of data from your BIG-IP devices.
- Perform the estimate for each module independently.
- Record the maximum number of DCDs recommended by any one estimate.
- Sum the total storage needed by all estimates.
- Divide the result in step 3 by the result of step 2.
You’ve performed the estimate for an ASM module, and the result is 2 DCDs and 60 GB of storage.
You’ve performed the estimate for Statistics, and the result is 3 DCDs and 120 GB of storage.
In this example, the maximum number of DCDs is 3 and the sum of the total storage is 180 GB. Consequently, the recommendation is 3 DCDs (the maximum, from the statistics estimate) and 60 GB storage (The sum of both, divided by the recommended number of DCDs).
