These instructions are for an Ubuntu host, with occasional comments about how to do similar tasks in CentOS.  It uses Metron's Vagrant support to launch a single-node VM installation.  The Vagrant image actually uses Debian instead of Ubuntu, because that was readily available, and they are very similar.  Resource requirements: These steps were tested on a Vagrant VM assigned 20 GB RAM, 100GB disk, and 2 CPUs.  Installation may work with lesser resources, but insufficient RAM will require turning off some processes.


As usual, remember to re-type commands, or at least be careful with cut-and-paste, as the cwiki formatter may have changed hyphens, quotes, etc., into similar-looking non-ascii characters.
