System and Software Requirements
The system requirements for the FioranoMQ Server is summarized in the following table.
|Platform||FioranoMQ Server and clients can run on any platform that supports JRE 1.7. Supported platforms include Microsoft Windows, Sun Solaris, Red Hat Linux, IBM AIX and HP-UX.|
Hard disk drive
300 MB of free disk space is required for full installation of FioranoMQ.
Minimum of 2 GB of RAM is recommended for optimal performance of FioranoMQ for a mid-range installation.
Minimum of 200 MHz CPU is required for basic installation.
Temporary Storage Space Requirements
For a Wizard Based installation, FioranoMQ uses a temporary directory in which it extracts all the files necessary to install the FioranoMQ Server on the target system. The extracted files are deleted from the temporary directory at the end of the installation process. A minimum free disk space of around 300 MB in the drive that has the configured Temp directory is required for installing FioranoMQ Server.
FioranoMQ Server, clients, and tools require a Java Virtual Machine (JVM) for their operations. Minimal JDK version that is used to run FioranoMQ and associated tools is 1.7. Fiorano recommends using the 64-bit version of JVM to avail maximum heap usage by Fiorano Process on a 64-bit platform. For the user convenience, a default version of Sun's JRE (version 1.7.0_60) is packaged with the Windows installer. Presently, we are not recommending JRE 8 for running FioranoMQ Replicated HA Servers.
On UNIX platforms, the number of File Descriptors required by the server process must be increased beyond the default value. The recommended value is 10,000 (The number of file handles). The launch scripts for UNIX automatically do this if they are given the required authorization.
