System requirements

This topic lists the hardware and third-party software requirements for BMC Atrium Orchestrator Platform and Content.

You must allocate sufficient resources to a component that is running on a virtual machine (VM). Ensure that BMC Atrium Orchestrator is the only product running on its host computer. System performance is affected by the total size of the modules being activated, not the number of modules in the environment.

The following table lists the system requirements for the BMC Atrium Orchestrator components.

1 Add the application memory noted to the operating system memory in accordance with the operating system vendor recommendations.
2 If your environment runs with high concurrent volumes and workflow complexities, increase the recommended application memory by a factor of 2x or 3x: from 8 GB to 16 GB or 24 GB; from 4 GB to 8 GB or 12 GB.

These recommendations are for production environments. Development grids may only require half the application memory documented above.

Implementing these parameters in standard environments

To implement the parameters from the preceding table in a single-server demonstration/POC environment, you must provide:

  • 6-8 GB for Access Manager, Repository, CDP, BMC Atrium Orchestrator Operator Control Panel, and graphing server
  • 2 CPUs
  • 10 GB of runtime disk space allocated to BMC Atrium Orchestrator

To implement the parameters from the preceding table in a two-server production environment, you must provide:

  • Server 1: 4 GB, 1 CPU, 40 GB disk space allocated to Access Manager and the repository
  • Server 2: 8 GB, 2 CPUs, 40 GB disk space allocated to a CDP and BMC Atrium Orchestrator Operator Control Panel

How log files affect disk space

During runtime, each component creates at least one log file set, the size of which depends on your configuration. The CDP, AP, and BMC Atrium Orchestrator Development Studio can also be configured to create a second log file set.

An individual log file can retain up to 4 MB of data. Upon reaching the maximum log size, the active log file is archived and a new active log is created. A standard log set might contain one active log and up to nine archive log files, each requiring 40 MB of disk space.

Third-party software requirements

The following table lists the libraries and Internet software required to run BMC Atrium Orchestrator and its components.

Third-party software requirements

Requirements

Notes

Network software

Supported operating systems have built-in TCP/IP network software.
Stand-alone named and default instances support the following network protocols:

  • Shared memory
  • Named pipes
  • TCP/IP

Network software requirements for BMC Atrium Orchestrator instances running on 64-bit OSs are the same as the requirements for those running on 32-bit versions.

Internet browsers and plug-ins

  • Microsoft Internet Explorer 8, 9, 10, and 11
  • Mozilla Firefox 3.0 or later
  • Adobe Flash Player 9 plug-in or later

Use only these products and versions to run BMC Atrium Orchestrator Operator Control Panel, Grid Manager, Repository Manager, and Access Manager.

Operating system libraries

Linux

Install all default operating system libraries.

Install basic calculator on the OSThe basic calculator is typically installed on your Linux system. If not, ensure that you install the basic calculator on the OS.

Solaris

Install all default operating system libraries.

    I am unable to locate detailed information on platform and OS version:

    eg:

    Platform

    Minimum Operating System version

    32 or 64 bit x86 PC Compatible

    Windows Server 2000, 2003, 2008 (32 and 64 bit)

    The only thing I can find is generic statements like (ie: no platform / version):

    You can use the GUI installation to install or upgrade the BMC Atrium Orchestrator components on Red Hat Linux, Sun Solaris, and Windows computers, and BMC Atrium Orchestrator Development Studio on Mac OS computers.

    Where is this information located?

    To install Development studio you have to have jre installed, but this is not mentioned any where

      Recent versions of AO (7.6.02 onwards) do not require the installation of a JRE – this is included in each of the installation packages.

    Problem reported on support ticket [ISS04281387] reveals that the installer for Linux environments, for the version 7.6.03 of the product requires that bc "Basic Calculator" is installed on the system.

     

    Problem also reported under: https://communities.bmc.com/thread/101207

     

    Update: just a short update, according to engineering, the problem is solved in the installer for the version 7.7 SP2 on...
