This article documents the system requirements for CA Workload Automation AE.
System Requirements for UNIX and Linux
As the number of users and the workload increases, you may see a performance benefit from adding additional memory and/or additional processing power. Additional processing power can be added either by using a faster CPU or by adding additional CPUs.
To install and run the CA Workload Automation AE server in a UNIX or Linux environment, the minimum recommended requirements are as follows:
  • Processor: 1 GHz, 2CPU
  • Physical memory: 4 GB RAM
  • Swap space: 2 GB
  • Hard disk free space: 5 GB
  • fsize: The file size ulimit must be set to unlimited. To determine the current setting, issue the following command:
    ulimit -f
    If the value is not unlimited, change this ulimit value by issuing the following command:
    ulimit -f unlimited
  • Disk space requirements for CA Workload Automation AE:
    • Full product: 700 MB
    • Application Server, Client, Command Sponsor: 520 MB
    • Scheduler, Client, Agent: 430 MB
    • Application Server, Web Server: 360 MB

    • The system temporary directory (/tmp or $TMPDIR) requires a minimum of 400 MB disk space for the installation.
    • The installer creates a directory to store control files. By default, the /opt/CA/installer directory is created. The file system that the installer directory belongs to requires a minimum of 10 MB disk space. For more information about the /opt/CA/installer directory, see (UNIX) Changes to System Files and Directories.
  • SDK runtime environment: 250 MB
  • Disk space for the database (to support default installation values):
    • Oracle: Data—800 MB, Index—80 MB
    • Sybase: Data—800 MB, Log—100 MB, tempdb—500 MB, tempdb log—50 MB
    For more information about the database requirements, see the appropriate database documentation or consult your database administrator. For information about tuning the database, see Maintain the Event Server.
