Processor

Given the lightweight nature of the RDS sensor, there are no significant requirements regarding the CPU.

Memory

The RDS Mac sensor's performance relies heavily on RAM buffers. A typical Mac sensor's RAM consumption is 20 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 100 MB of RAM.

Disk space

Typically, disk space usage is less than 20 MB.
