Recommended external db platform?
I have an EM 3000 (v2.2) that is currently monitoring 21 devices. I have tried to offload the database to an external VM (Windows 2003 Standard Edition SP2, 2 CPU/4GB RAM) running MySQL 5.1.57. However, we see frequent errors in the EM's log files when attempting to run reports, do general queries, etc. related to what I am guessing is an inability of the VM to perform fast enough for the EM.
Is there any recommended platform for hosting an external MySQL database for the EM?
