Some notes on sizing


The more clients you manage, the more memory you need. You can roughly calculate ~430 KB per Client.


Rportd does not consume many CPU resources. The smallest CPU on any cloud provider is suitable. Rport performs very well on a Raspberry Pi (armv7 and aarch/armv8)


Rport has built-in monitoring with retention of historical data. Each host writes ~16 MB data per day to the database. You can freely configure the retention period. If you want to manage many hosts with rport and if you require a long retention period, put large disks in your VM.
