Processor

Given the lightweight nature of the RDS sensor, there are no significant requirements regarding the CPU; any machine capable of properly running the supported versions of the operating system should be able to run the client sensor without any noticeable impact.

Memory

The RDS Linux sensor's performance relies heavily on RAM buffers. A typical Linux sensor's RAM consumption is 100 MB, however in some rare circumstances (for example, when the server is under high load or there is a long network break), the sensor may use 500 MB of RAM.

Disk space

Typically, disk space usage is less than 20 MB.
