System requirements for Presentation Server

Hardware requirements

After you determine the size of your environment, consult the following table for recommended hardware.


  • The recommended hardware requirements apply to both physical or virtual machines.
  • Parallel CPUs usually improve user response time better than a single CPU with a higher clock speed.
  • (Applicable to POC and medium environments only) The installer validates the system to check if the following system requirements are met. If your target computer does not meet these requirements, you cannot proceed with the installation (or upgrade). However, in a non-production environment, you can skip the system requirements validation with the -J MINIMAL=true parameter.

     Requirements for installation and upgrade
    • Total RAM (in MB): 32,000
    • Available RAM (in MB): 25,000
    • Total swap space / page file (in MB): 8,000
    • Available swap space / page file (in MB): 8,000

  • Frequency: 2.6 GHz and above
*(For 11.3.02 and later only, not supported on 11.3.01) If the infrastructure policies range from 4,000 to 20,000 and/or concurrent users range from 50 to 150, it is recommended to use 16 vCPUs.


48 GB*

*Based on the latest performance testing, it is now recommended to use 48 GB RAM instead of the previously recommended 32 GB.

Storage configuration

400 GB

1 - After integrating components with the TrueSight Presentation Server if you observe that the memory consumption of the TrueSight Presentation Server is consistently growing above 80%, add additional memory as required.

User Rights

A non-root user who has modification permissions to specific directories and files.
A user with root privileges cannot install the TrueSight Presentation Server.

Supported versions of Linux

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.x and 7.x
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11.x, 12.x, and 15
  • Oracle Linux Server 6.x and 7.x


  • BMC products are certified for use on supported operating system versions. BMC does not explicitly test for OS patches/updates that are released after a BMC product is released.
  • BMC products should work fine with minor updates to these supported operating systems. For assistance, contact BMC Customer Support.

Red Hat subscription 

The product requires some additional libraries to be present on the system (see list below).

The preferred method to add any missing libraries is to use the yum command to fetch the necessary library packages from the RHN (Red Hat Network) repository via the Internet.  To use this method, a Red Hat subscription is needed. Register the system by clicking System > Administration > Red Hat Subscription Manager in the menu on the server itself.  After registering the system, you can use yum install to download and install the required libraries from the RHN.

X Windows 

If you are installing the TrueSight Presentation Server by using the graphical user interface, you must install X Windows.

On the Red Hat Enterprise Linux terminal, type yum grouplist and check that X Window System is listed.  If not, then run yum groupinstall 'X Window System' to install the necessary packages.   

Required libraries

Ensure that the following libraries are present to install the TrueSight Presentation Server.  To install the libraries, use the following commands.
