Re: Airwave Performance Setting Adjusment

you shouldn't be using 7.2k HDs and raid 10 is recommended.

Re: Airwave Performance Setting Adjusment

Also, other factors that would be needed to help figure out how to better fine tune for performance:

1) number of monitored infrastructure devices (switches/controllers/APs)

2) client behavior (office [same clients everyday] vs hotspot/store [new unique clients daily])

3) amount of clients at peak hours

4) number of campus/buildings/floor plans in VisualRF

5) is there plan for network growth?

office

3) amount of clients at peak hours
about 100

4) number of campus/buildings/floor plans in VisualRF
2 buildings
HQ 12 floor
IT 14 floor

5) is there plan for network growth?
It was planned to be about 400 APs and 500 Clients on 2017.

Re: Airwave Performance Setting Adjusment

Sizing looks good for that type of deployment.  Like @pmonardo said, you should have at least 15k RPM disk drives or better since AirWave is disk I/O intensive.
