GNS3 is an open source (GNU GPL) software that simulates complex networks while being as close as possible from the way real networks perform, all of this without having dedicated network hardware such as routers and switches.
GNS3 provides an intuitive graphical user interface to design and configure virtual networks, it runs on traditional PC hardware and may be used on multiple operating systems, including Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X.
In order to provide complete and accurate simulations, GNS3 actually uses the following emulators to run the very same operating systems as in real networks:
- Dynamips, the well known Cisco IOS emulator.
- VirtualBox, runs desktop and server operating systems as well as Juniper JunOS.
- QEMU, a generic open source machine emulator, it runs Cisco ASA, PIX and IPS.
GNS3 is an excellent alternative or complementary tool to real labs for network engineers, administrators and people studying for certifications such as Cisco CCNA, CCNP andCCIE as well as Juniper JNCIA, JNCIS and JNCIE.
The minimum RAM is the amount of memory needed for IOS to work at maximum capacity with most feature configured and activated. From experience you can usually use a bit less RAM just fine.You can also use gns3 on low end computer by using idle pc value
We really recommend using c3640, c3660, c3725, c3745 and c7200 IOS images listen above, they have proven to be the most stable in GNS3 provided you use the right amount of RAM and Idle-PC value.
This settings will help Dynamips to consume less CPU. It’s specific to each different IOS image.Idle pc value will be the best option to make Gns3 work smoothly on any computer. To learn how to setup Idle pc value check this post How To setup idle pc value easily
