1. Software Requirements
To run Kiali, you’re going to need two things:
2. Hardware Requirements
Any machine capable of running OpenShift/OKD should be able to also run Kiali. This usually means, for production environments:
For masters: 16GB RAM, 4vCPUs, 40GB of hard disk space.
For nodes: 8GB RAM, 1vCPU, 16GB of hard disk space.
You can find more information here.
For development, and using
oc cluster up, the requirements are a little
lower, so 8GB of ram is usually ok, depending on how demanding your
applications are, and how many services you’re planning on running at the same
time on your machine. Of course, your mileage may vary, so plan accordingly.
Keep in mind that Kiali is not specially demanding of your machine resources, and, as an isolated part of your environment, should not affect your applications throughput and latency.
