System requirements

  • Ubuntu Linux 64 bit (14.04 LTS "trusty" and 16.04 LTS "xenial"), Debian Linux 64 bit (8 "jessie" and 9 "stretch")
  • 2 CPU cores (x86-64)
  • 2 GB RAM

Production system sizing

Unfortunately there is no golden rule for the right sizing of a monitoring system. This depends on the amount of hosts and services you like to monitor. Please keep in mind that a monitoring system usually will create more I/O than your KVM farm!

A rough guide:

  • 32 GB RAM
  • 16 CPU Cores
  • 500GB space


We provide debian packages to install openITCOCKPIT via the system package manager apt.
