Sizing for Win2008 64-Bit servers

Edward Scarberry (11010) | asked Oct 07 '13, 11:45 a.m.

We are going to create an application server only for RTC 4.0.4.  The server will be a Win2008 64-Bit box.  The question is what is the recommended disk size?

The disk size of the application server is not much of a factor.
I have a base install of JTS and CCM on Tomcat. It takes up about 1.5 gigs of space.
The only thing I can think of that might increase the size would be the size of the logs and the full text indexes.
(Unless you are using the derby databases stored in their default location under  ...\server\conf\<application>\Derby)

What is important is the amount of space you will need for the Databases.
Those can grow rather large and there is no formula to calculate this due to the number of factors involved.
The size is affected mostly by work Item attachment and  files in the SCM especially binary ones.

Here are a couple links that might help

Here's the CLM system requirements for CLM 4.0.4:

Edit: Never mind, the system requirements does not make any mention of disk size requirements.

I know the link has 403 in it but it is valid for 4.0.4 as well.

I also took a brief look through the requirements and I didn't see any mention of a recommended disk size. That's unfortunate because I think the work item indices can require a significant amount of disk space, so some planning is needed.

Hi Bo,
I am not able to find disk requirements in system requirements. Did I miss that?

Bo Chulindra commented Oct 08 '13, 10:27 a.m.

Yeah, in my comment, I mentioned that I could not find a recommended disk size either in the system requirements wiki.

I'll edit the answer to make that clear.
