Hardware requirements for Drift Management
Ensure that the BMC Remedy Action Request (AR) System server meets the minimum hardware requirements described here. Installing applications on an underpowered server can result in unexpected system behavior, including installation errors, slow response time, and sudden application stoppages.
The hardware requirements for any given environment depend on the size and amount of activity you expect. This section describes minimum requirements.
In most cases, BMC recommends that you perform an analysis of your organization's needs to determine the hardware requirements for your installation.
The minimum requirements given are intended for use in nonproduction, proof of concept, or small development environments. Using the minimum requirements, you can install the AR System server, launch the BMC Remedy User Tool, and view the AR System sample application without further customization on a Windows-based server.
The following requirements are for Windows-based servers. UNIX servers have comparable hardware requirements. They do not include database minimum requirements, which vary by vendor. See the database vendor's documentation for recommended database system requirements.
Drift Management hardware requirements
The Drift Management hardware requirements increase when you install applications that run on top of AR System. The following section describes the minimum hardware requirements for an AR System server and one complex application (for example, the Drift Management application), in a production environment, on a Windows-based server. Following table lists the hardware requirements:
|4 GB (highly recommended)|
|Available hard disk space||7 GB|
|Dual processor||3 GHz|
For each additional, complex application (for example, Change Management), you require an additional 2 GB of disk space.
BMC Remedy Mid Tier hardware requirements
When installing the BMC Remedy Mid Tier, BMC strongly recommends that you install it on a separate server, with the same minimum and recommended requirements as an AR System server. If, however, you do combine the Mid Tier and an AR System installation on the same server, see Drift Management hardware requirements for recommendations concerning that server's minimum and recommended hardware requirements.
