5.2.x - Hardware Support: Memory, Processor and Disk Space

Product documentation


Abstract

What are the hardware requirements for Tivoli Storage Productivity Center? How much memory, process and disk space do I need for managing my storage environment?

Content

Server:

Processor Windows and Linux
Intel Xeon 4 processor cores @ 2.5 GHz or greater
2 Intel Xeon L5520 8 processor cores @2.27 GHz or greater

AIX
POWER5TM, POWER6TM, POWER7TM, POWER8TM or later systems with 4 or 8 processor cores
Recommended
Memory
16 GB RAM

In an evaluation environment with a limited number of volumes, subsystems, fabrics, switches, ports, agents or agentless servers being monitored, you may not require 16 GB RAM, but at least 8 GB is recommended.
Disk space




Windows
15 GB of available disk space

Linux
15 GB of available disk space

/usr
/var
/home
/tmp
/opt

If Red Hat Enterprise Linux is configured so that the above directories are individual file systems, each file system must have the following available space:

/usr 1 GB
/var 2 GB
/home 3 GB
/tmp 1 GB
/opt 8 GB

AIX
/usr - 220 MB
/var - 1 MB
/home - 2.75 GB
/tmp - 700 MB
/opt - 18 GB



Significant additional disk space of 40 - 80 GB is required for database and log files after data collection has started. The amount needed depends on:
  • the number of devices being managed
  • the length of time data is kept
  • how frequently data is collected

Tip for all operating systems: You do not need to manually create any subdirectories when you install Spectrum Control.



Storage Resource Agents:
Processor Pentium 400 MHZ processor or higher
Memory 256 MB of RAM
Disk space Approximately 350 MB of hard disk space
