A note on storage requirements

The InfiniMetrics virtual appliance requires, by default, a 30GB virtual hard disk that is suitable for storing data of up to 4 InfiniBox systems with about 50 monitored entities (hosts, volumes) each. If these limits are surpassed, more storage will be required. Along with the added storage, it is also recommended to increase the VM's CPU allocation and RAM allocation to handle the increased load.
