perfSONAR Hardware Recommendations
perfSONAR Hardware Guide
We recommend using a dedicated host for perfSONAR. Its much easier to install, and some perfSONAR tests are perturbed by other processes running on the host.
If you want to build a 40G perfSONAR node, see our "Data Transfer Node" recommendations as a starting point.
