Default NextGen Connect - server requirements

I wanted to get an idea of what others were doing for their Mirth Connect setup, in terms of RAM and Disk Space they have allocated.

Planning on deploying to CentOS VM

That a very broad question. Maybe list more attributes about message volume, kind of channels, where mirthdb sits, on an on.

+1 for CentOS and a ton of RAM. "Speed" is almost entirely dependent upon the speed of the database, so use a RAID array of SSD disks whenever possible!

We run multiple Mirth instances on the SmartOS platform.

So, Solaris Zone
3G ram
3G swap
Since it's a zone, we've only chosen to limit ram. THis is for us and controlled by us, so I know what all is using drive and cpu, both of which are unlimited usage for the VMs.

I know Java likes ram - but we handle only about 700k msg/month, and I'm running twin instances, so that's about 350k msgs per month each... 3G ram is enough for that.

Database is a common Postgresql setup. 9.6.11. uptime on that is 814 days, lol. It's running in a ZFS backed VMWare setup. 32G ram for the database. drive throughput is just fine for our needs. overkill really.
