Operations Center components not only work together, but also interact with existing components in your environment. When installing Operations Center tools and components, there are minimum hardware requirements that must be met. Keep in mind that requirements vary, depending on the site, and might be higher because of the size of your organization's managed infrastructure. For details, see Operations Center Getting Started Guide.
AppManager Operations Portal is supported on the following platforms:
Microsoft Windows Server 2008
Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2
Microsoft Windows Server 2012
Operations Center requires 64-bit virtual machines because of the memory demands of the application.
NOTE:Although the standard Operations Center documentation allows for installation of its components on multiple operating systems, the AppManager Operations Portal is only supported when all components are installed on the Microsoft Windows Server versions specified above.
AppManager Operations Portal supports the following databases:
Microsoft SQL Server 2008
Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2
Microsoft SQL Server 2012
NOTE:Although the standard Operations Center documentation allows for usage of multiple databases, the AppManager Operations Portal is only supported when using the Microsoft SQL Server databases listed above. Databases must be case insensitive.
Any server-class machine that supports JRE 8 and one of the specified operating systems listed above. Operations Center is certified for Java 1.8.0_102 for the client and 1.8.0_65 for the server.
Memory and processing speed requirements vary widely based on your configuration. At a minimum, 8 GB of RAM for 64-bit and a dual-processor are estimated for an average size implementation, but more RAM and/or processors might be required.
It might be necessary to tune the JVM memory settings based on your usage and environment. If you need help determining more specific hardware requirements, contact NetIQ Consulting.
Disk space requirements for the AppManager Operations Portal vary based on the size and configuration of your environment. Following are the minimum disk space estimates based on a Control Center environment with eight AppManager repositories:
2 GB for the Operations Center server
650 MB for the Operations Center configuration storage database (estimated growth rate is approximately 50 - 100 MB per AppManager repository)
1.5 GB for the Operations Center Dashboard
100 MB for the Dashboard database (estimated growth rate is approximately 30 MB per community)
Operations Center supports:
Microsoft Internet Explorer 10, 11 (Adobe SVG Plug-in is required to access some features in the Operations Center Dashboard)
Any machine on which the Operations Center console is run must be connected to the Internet or the corporate Intranet and meet the following minimum requirements:
Minimum free disk space of 200 MB
Minimum memory allocation space (RAM) of 2GB RAM
Minimum processing speed of 1 GHz (Windows)
