In a Canton setup, which of vCPU vs RAM is more important for the performance?

Hi team,

In a Canton setup, may I know which of vCPU or RAM is more important for higher performance ? On participant node(s) side? On domain node side?

Thanks in advance, this will be very helpful on sizing estimation.


Hi @jaypeeda
It depends on your workflow, you need more CPU if you are performing lots of computation in your Daml workflow. Large amounts of RAM will help with multitasking but will primarily improve performance in complex programs and operations. You can read more about performance and sizing here
