    The arbiter does not need many resources.  There is very little processing and data storage happening on the arbiter server itself.  All it does is communicate with the other servers in the HA setup to help determine who the primary server is and to prevent a single point of failure in the HA system.

    2 cores, 64MB of disk and 1GB of RAM would be more than enough for the arbiter.  Any recent machine (from the last 2-3 years) should be sufficient.
