Application Server Requirements

Hardware Minimum Requirements (based on physical hardware performance, not a virtual environment):

The minimum MM application server requirements (based on physical hardware performance, not a virtual environment) are:

  • Processor: 2 GHZ quad core (4 cores)
  • Memory: 8 GB of RAM
  • Storage: 10 GB of disk space

However, the Hardware Recommended Requirements for a full enterprise application server suggests at least 64 cores and 300 GB of memory, as can be calculated below:

(1) Active Concurrent Users during peak daytime (among thousands of potential users on SSO / LDAP), and assuming all metadata harvesting and indexing is scheduled over night

 

 

(2)  Light users are typical business / end users performing search, browse, report, review, comment

 

 

(3) Heavy users are typical advanced developers performing editing, mapping and complex lineage.

 

 

(4)  Memory (GB) as configured in $MM_HOME/tomcat/conf/tomcat.properties or with the $MM_HOME/Setup.sh utility.

 

 

(5) Database connections as configured in $MM_HOME/tomcat/conf/MetaIntegration/localhost/MM.xml
