Notes on 2 vCPU VM configuration

The 2 vCPU VM configuration can be used for a Primary or a Secondary Cisco MediaSense node.
Expansion nodes are not supported with this configuration. This configuration is available for deployment on the UCS-E servers. Look for details here Cisco_MediaSense_on_UCSE

Disk Requirements For a Primary or Secondary Node

Disk 1 - 80GB for O/S
Disk 2 - 80GB for Database and working storage
Disk 3 - 210 GB Minimum. Can be expanded to 12 TB

Disk Requirements For a Expansion Node

Expansion Nodes are not supported with this virtual machine configuration.

Supported Capabilities

Physical Hardware Audio-Weight Media Streams Supported Per Node + Concurrent API Requests Supported per non-Expansion Node Max Call Arrival Rate per Node Max Nodes per Cluster Max Media Storage per Node
UCS B/C or Specs Based 40 3 + 3 queued 20 per minute 2 12 TB
SRE-910 60 3 + 3 queued 20 per minute 2 210 GB
UCS-E 40 3 + 3 queued 20 per minute 2 400 GB or 700 GB++


+ A audio call between two end points equals two Audio-Weight Media Streams.
++ Max recording storage per node on UCS E140S blades is 400GB when using 600GB SED drives, or 700GB when using 900GB 15K RPM drives.



Notes on 7 vCPU VM configuration

The 7 vCPU VM configuration can be used for a Primary, Secondary or an Expansion Cisco MediaSense node.

Disk Requirements For a Primary or Secondary Node

Disk 1 - 80GB for O/S
Disk 2 - 600GB for Database and working storage
Disk 3 - 210 GB Minimum. Can be expanded to 12 TB

Disk Requirements For a Expansion Node

Disk 1 - 80GB for O/S
Disk 2 - 80GB for Database and working storage
Disk 3 - 210 GB Minimum. Can be expanded to 12 TB

Supported Capabilities

Physical Hardware Audio-Weight Media Streams Supported Per Node+ Concurrent API REquests Supported per non-Expansion Node Max Call Arrival Rate per Node Max Nodes per Cluster Max Media Storage per Node
UCS B/C or Specs Based 400 15 + 10 queued 2 per second 5 12 TB


+ A audio call between two end points equals two Audio-Weight Media Streams.

IOPS and Storage System Performance Requirements

Summary of IOPS for Cisco MediaSense (Data from the 9.1(1) release):

O/S Partition Database Partition Media Partition
Average IOPS (ops/sec) 100 1700 50
Average Bandwidth (kbytes/sec) 2000 7300 1000
