General installation ans sizing information on DXC installation.

Question:

Can we install DXC with collectors i.e. APM collector? And If we do not have spare hardware does DXC co exist?

Environment:
APM 10.2, 10.5
Answer:

DXC can technically exist with a collector. DxC collector process needs 2GB, kafka needs 1GB, zookeeper needs 512Mb, then extra resources of logstash to report data into APM.

If you co-locate DxC and collector and have route in from outside world, it sounds like a possible security exploit you might want to avoid.
