Add CPU, Memory and Disk Space to expedition server

We are going to expand CPU, Memory and Disk Space for our expedition server in order to work with Machine Learning and Rule Enrichment.  Is there a way to add "hot-add" functionality in order to add resources without a reboot?

Also, are there configuration changes that we need to make to get expedition to recognize the new CPU, Memory and Disk space that is going to be added?

Hello @Blake_Wofford 


No anytime you have to add new memory, CPU and disk space this will require a reboot.

Also to build upon your previous statement regarding making changes to the CPU and memory and disk space, generally you would just resize the existing disk space to expand the storage or you can mount a new drive if you are unable to expand upon it.


If you need to alter the CPU and memory you can access the files here to make the changes.
