Verify System Requirements

To achieve the best performance on the SWG VA, it is important that you install the software on a system that meets the specified requirements. Follow these guidelines to guarantee satisfactory performance and operation of the SWG VA.
The host server must be on VMware’s Hardware Compatibility List (see the list at http://www.vmware.com/resources/compatibility/search.php).
The server must have sufficient virtual resources to run a SWG VA, as described below.
The following requirements reflect Broadcom’s test environment. Using the same or a similar configuration should achieve satisfactory performance of the SWG VA; however, you should expect different performance results if your resources or virtual drive configuration are different from the configuration described in the following tables.
General System Requirements
Resources
Requirements
Virtual CPU
You must reserve at least the minimum CPU.
  • 1 GHz (minimum)
  • 2.6 GHz (recommended)
Minimum storage space per disk
100 GB
The following table lists requirements for various model sizes. Note that each virtual drive must be the same size.
After you have deployed your virtual appliance, you should have the number of virtual disks that the model requires (listed in the following table) plus a boot disk. The boot disk and one data disk are automatically created during deployment.
