This System Requirements and Platform Support Guide Revision 1 contains information on the hardware requirements and supported platforms for this release of Foglight®. Please review the information in this guide before installing Foglight.
This guide is intended for Foglight system administrators. The first topic lists the system requirements for the Management Server and database repository for 32-bit and 64-bit platforms. The next topic lists the platforms supported for the Management Server, database repository, and the Agent Manager, as well as validated web browsers and PDF viewer.
This topic lists the hardware requirements (CPU, RAM, and disk storage) for 64-bit installations of the Foglight Management Server and the database repository.
The hardware needed to run Foglight can vary widely depending on several factors, including:
You should not consider doing a production implementation without conducting a proper scoping and sizing exercise with a qualified Quest Software Inc. representative. You can arrange for a sizing analysis by contacting your Quest Software Inc. Sales Representative. At a minimum, you are required to provide hardware matching the specifications in this topic.
Each Foglight® Management Server installation consists of two components:
Setting up Foglight to run both of its components on the same machine is known as a single-tier installation. Using separate machines for each component is known as a multi-tier installation. Whichever configuration you choose, each component requires its own specifically-dedicated resources. To help facilitate sizing, the resources required to support each component are listed separately.
To install Foglight in a single-tier configuration, you must have hardware capable of running both the Management Server (JVM) and database repository together. The requirements are listed below.
If using built-in embedded database repository:
