Reference hardware configuration

Considerations about running the software on Virtual Machines:
  • Virtual Machines generally lack a stable and highly-accurate clock source. This is critical requirement for the Packet Sensor and Packet Filter.
  • Virtual Machines often suffer from disk I/O bottlenecks. Console needs large disk drives with high I/O transfer rates.
  • A predictable allocation of resources is impossible under a VM, making the system potentially unstable.
