The analysis of live network data is a resource intensive task. The bottom line is this: if you throw hardware at ROCK it will use it, and use it well. The higher the IOPS the better. Here's a starting point to get you moving:
|CPU||4 or more physical cores|
|Memory||16GB (8GB is doable, 16 is better)|
|Storage||256GB, with 200+ of that dedicated to
|Network||2 gigabit interfaces, one for management and one for collection|
NOTE: We've put together a video series that goes into some good detail on hardware choices for both sensor and network equipment. A more in-depth hardware guide can also be found in the development section.
