  • 1.  CA SCM r12 sizing

    Posted Oct 14, 2011 12:40 PM
    Hello community members.

    In the last three years, I had several CA SCM implementations, upgrades and migrations.
    Now, I would like to hear your opinion and experiences about the recommended requirements for CA SCM implementations.

    I will start...
    As an example, in a previous client, we have a machine with a Xeon X5550 @ 2.67GHz and 4 cores with 32 GB RAM running Red Hat ES 5.4 64 bits.
    This server has 350 active users and a peak of 45 concurrent connections, and it runs CA SCM smoothly.
    Until now, this was the client with the more demanding environment.

    As another example, I can refer the next client, which has the following Harvest r7.1 environment:
    650 users
    2000 groups
    450 environments
    450 repositories

    What would you guys recommend as CA SCM r12 hardware requirements for this one?

    Best regards,
    Ricardo Bernardino

    The previous hardware setup is adequate for the new client which seems to have about
    twice the users, so I would recommend -minserver=20 -maxserver=75 to accomodate
    a concurrent user access of ~100 to 150. 32GB Ram is ok.
    500Gb or 1TB hard diskspace minimum (SCSI or Sata III):

    Be sure to have the customer schedule a weekly weekend maintenance period for
    dropping the statistics and rebuilding the database indexes and finally rebooting
    the Harvest broker machine.

    The future Production machine is supposed to have 1TB disk space and 200GB RAM.

    Nowadays client have -minserver=5 and -maxserver=195 but the port range is only 24 ports wide.
    I already suggested a change.

    I will discuss the other (good) advices with the client.

    Thank you Dave,

    If you are using a direct_connect_port_range setting in the rtserver.cm file then the number of

    ports (and these ports must be opened on the firewall) MUST be equal to the maxserver setting+quesize.

    So if maxserver is 195 and queuesize is set to 2 then the port range must be 197 ports.

    It has been interesting to read your contributions. Today I have a similar doubts. First of all, is there a relationship between the number of concurrent users and the memory needed at the broker server? How do your dimension or size the suggested RAM and CPU requirements?
