System Requirements

Windows Installation
In addition to Operating System requirements, the minimum system requirements are:

Platform Memory CPU Disk Space
Win 2000 Professional 128 MB P200 140 MB
Win 2000 Server 128 MB P200 140 MB
Win XP Pro 128 MB P400 140 MB
Win 2003 Server 128 MB P400 140 MB


The recommended system requirements are:

Platform Memory CPU Disk Space
Win 2000 Professional 256 MB P550 140 MB
Win 2000 Server 256 MB P550 140 MB
Win XP Pro 256 MB P550 140 MB
Win 2003 Server 256 MB P550 140 MB

Memory requirements for the server depend on how many users access the server at the same time and how many daemon processes are running (by default, 5 to 20 daemons are running). Use the formula in the table below to calculate your memory needs.

  Base Concurrent Users Daemons Total
Formula 256 MB + 6 MB per user + 8 MB per daemon = ?
Example 256 MB 6 x 100 = 600 MB 8 x 20 = 160 MB = 1016 MB

Platform Memory Disk Space
Solaris 64 MB 112 MB
HP-UX 64 MB 141 MB
AIX 64 MB 65 MB
Red Hat Linux 64 MB 117 MB
SUSE 64 MB 117 MB

NOTE! The example is for the case of 100 concurrent users and 20 daemon processes. It is included only to illustrate the use of the formula. It is NOT intended as a recommendation.



Patches for UNIX Platforms
Some UNIX platforms require patches before they will run the JRE (version 1.4) as used by Version Manager. See the SupportNet web site https://sos.serena.com/Portal/Logon.asp for more information (Knowledgebase Document 70396).



HP-UX: Recommended Kernel Parameter Settings
Set the following kernel parameters to allow the VM web and file servers to work properly on HP-UX:

    max_thread_proc 1000
    maxfiles 2000

 


IMPORTANT: After setting the kernel parameters, you must rebuild the kernel.
