System requirements for Presentation Server


Hardware requirements

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

Notes

  • 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.

    • 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

    For more information, see the installing or upgrading instructions

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.


Operating system requirements

Support for third-party products

To receive full support for a BMC product, you must have such product installed in a supported environment, as specified in the BMC product documentation. If a third-party vendor cancels support for one of its products (such as an operating system or subsystem), and that third-party product integrates or interacts with the BMC product you have licensed, you must upgrade to a supported version of that third-party product before BMC Customer Support can provide you with support for the affected BMC product.

  • For RHEL 8.x supported installation,  you must follow the Technical bulletin Open link .
  • For RHEL, an Operating System upgrade is not supported. For example, you cannot upgrade RHEL from version 7.x to 8.x. An Operating System upgrade is supported only for minor versions, such as from 8.1 to 8.4.
UmaskUmask must be set to 022.

Notes

  • 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.
