  • For 2000 points, what kind of hardware at least needed?
    For CPU: i3, i5 or i7? can Raspberry do this work?
    Anything else bottleneck of hardware that we need concern?


  • This really depends what you want to do with the 2000 points. The most recent version of Raspberry Pi could probably poll 2000 modbus points fine. But will have memory problems if you want to do other things like query large amounts of data or run larger reports.

    How many users will there be?
    How fast will you be updating and logging points?
    What protocol will you be using?
    How long do you need to store data for?
    What other features will you be using?
    What operating system (Windows or Linux)?

    All of these things will factor into how to size your hardware but for 2000 points a very modest server like an i3 with 4-8GB of ram would be more than enough. Even our MangoES can handle 3000+ points but there will be limitations on other features.


  • @joelhaggar said in Hardware parameter to recommand?:

    How many users will there be?*
    less than ten online
    How fast will you be updating and logging points?
    5 minutes
    What protocol will you be using?
    modbus tcp
    How long do you need to store data for?
    3 years
    What other features will you be using?
    just features as system default, chart\report etc.
    What operating system (Windows or Linux)?
    now I wish to use Linux


  • 2000 points logged every 5 minutes is about 631 million data points which will take up approximately 13 GB

    You could probably do this with a 32GB MangoES: https://infiniteautomation.com/mango-es/

    Or I would recommend a minimum of a core i3 with 4GB of Ram for a server.


  • thank you!
