System requirements

Before you install the product, ensure that your environment meets the hardware and software requirements listed in the following topics:

Hardware requirements

You must allocate sufficient resources to a component that is running on a virtual machine. Ensure that TrueSight Orchestration is the only product running on its host computer.


For software requirements and compatibility information for this release of TrueSight Orchestration, see BMC Solution and Product Availability and Compatibility Utility (SPAC requires a Support login). Log in using your support ID, search for TrueSight Orchestration Platform and choose the current release to display compatibility information.

1 Add the application memory noted to the operating system memory in accordance with the operating system vendor recommendations.


Application memory is different than the physical RAM required for the server. Application memory is the amount of memory TrueSight Orchestration applications can use out of the total available physical memory on the server. 

Since TrueSight Orchestration consumes no more than 50 percent of the server memory, BMC recommends that if a server has an 8GB CDP, that server must have at least 16GB total memory.

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

2.b As the total size of the activated modules in your environment increases, you may need to increase the application memory by 2x: from 8GB to 16GB. 


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

By default, the memory settings (-Xmx and -Xms parameters) for TrueSight Orchestration Platform components is set to minimal required to start the applications. For QA and production environments, BMC recommends that you specify the memory size values as per the application memory settings specified in the earlier table. For more information about adjusting memory settings, see Configuring memory settings.

For optimal performance, BMC Software recommends that you use a 64-bit operating system. You can configure an LAP to run on a 32-bit operating system, but the allocated memory is limited to 1.5 GB.

Java requirements

TrueSight Orchestration Platform uses Java 8. Clients running on Java 7 may face issues with communication handshake due to incompatibilities between Java 7 and Java 8 versions. BMC recommends that you update your environment to Java 8.

Implementing system 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 the repository, CDP, and TrueSight Orchestration Operator Control Panel
  • 2 CPUs
  • 10 GB of runtime disk space allocated to TrueSight Orchestration

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

  • Server 1: 2 GB, 1 CPU, 40 GB disk space allocated to the repository
  • Server 2: 8 GB, 2 CPUs, 40 GB disk space allocated to a CDP and TrueSight Orchestration 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 TrueSight Orchestration 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.
