Title: GUI and resources
Post by: dreamerman on May 04, 2019, 02:23:28 am
Hi, I wonder how much it cost in terms of hardware resources (CPU, RAM etc) when accessing GUI? Is there a rule of thumb? Cheers

I think it depends on the page. Dashboard, live view, traffic graphs, everthing that gets updating data, consumes more cpu, than when you just open a simple configuration page. Once loaded, it consumes nothing until you save or apply it.
Just open console and watch the php-fpm and lighthttp processes in top

Default install with python backend is good for about 500 MB of RAM, but we recommend 1 GB at least to avoid problems with additional services. Can't be much more specific because isolated components don't mean much of GUI can't use the backend service and vice versa.
