So let’s get into a topic that I'm sure many have thought about, and that is the viability of using predictive analytics for helping manage applications. This idea of a pragmatic approach to predictive analytics may seem like an oxymoron, because you may be thinking of the typical examples in the industry that you see in "Big Data" projects. These projects cite using terabytes of data as part of their challenge and they use specialized data stores with complex analytical models written by data scientists to find... [More]

I found on the Manual, for the version 7.2 FP2, that is recommended to have the agent on the same system as the vCenter "as long as it has sufficient capacity to do so" but I don't find any information about the CPU (type, number of cores, etc..) and MEMORY that the agent need.
Have this too
"If you plan to install the monitoring agent and the vCenter on the same system, ensure that there is sufficient capacity for both, including primary metrics of CPU, memeory, disk space, disck I/O, and network bandwidth
