Documentation update

   

To provide a better user experience, we have now created a separate documentation space for BMC Helix Automation Console (previously called BMC Helix Vulnerability Management).
Users of BMC Helix Automation Console can find the latest documentation at BMC Helix Automation Console. .

Deployment sizing requirements

TrueSight Automation Console supports a variety of deployment configurations. Most configurations require the TrueSight Automation Console database and application to be installed on separate servers. 

Minimum deployment sizing requirements

The following table describes minimum requirements based on various deployment sizes.

A small deployment assumes that the database and the application are hosted on the same server. Memory requirements refer to total memory, not heap size.

If you require a deployment larger than the Large deployment described above, extrapolate the system requirements based on the information in the table.
