 +==== 3.2 CPU & Memory resources ====
 +
 +Both SignalK as well as Node-red are rather resource intensive software applications to run on the GX Device. From a CPU usage point of view as well as RAM memory.
 +
 +Ofcourse, how intensive depends on what kind of flows (node-red) or how many messages & handling of them (SignalK) happens in the system.
 +
 +From a GX device point of view, from the support models the Venus GX is the one with the least resources. Running both SignalK and Node-RED at the same time will be "​pushing it" to say it simply.
 +
 +Cerbo GX is already much faster, as it has a dual core CPU as well as much more RAM.
 +
 +More details about CPU & RAM differences are in this document: https://​github.com/​victronenergy/​venus/​wiki/​machines.
 +
 +When running out of RAM or CPU, the device will slow down. And eventually also reboot by itself due to the watchdog.
