This topic provides information about the minimum requirements and supported resources for installing the BMC TrueSight IT Data Analytics (or IT Data Analytics) product:
The following table lists the minimum hardware requirements:
The preceding operating systems are applicable for both the product, the target hosts (where data resides), and for the standalone Collection Agent that you might install on the target hosts.
|CPU and memory|
2 CPU's and 4 GB RAM
Note: In a production environment, the minimum requirement would be 8 cores and 16 GB RAM for handling a 50-GB to 100-GB volume of data per day and upto four users.
IT Data Analytics
20 GB for installing IT Data Analytics in a single-server deployment. This value includes the amount of space required for some IT Data Analytics application log files that are expected to grow over time. Additionally, this value includes 15 GB required for ensuring data guarantee for the Collection Station component.
Note: If you are operating in a multiple-server deployment, you require 15 GB disk space for every new Collection Station added in your environment.
|For indexing data|
Example: Disk space required for indexing 20 GB data per day with a default retention period of 7 days is approximately 160 GB. This value includes the amount of disk space required for installing the product.
|Note: The preceding disk space sizes are for reference purposes only. While calculating the disk space, it is recommended that you add a buffer of 20% to the total size that you arrive at based on the preceding estimates.|
|Standalone Collection Agent|
2 GB for installing the standalone Collection Agent.
This value includes the amount of space required for some IT Data Analytics application log files.
