System requirements are provided for the servers in the CA WCC environment.
CA WCC Server
The main CA WCC product is installed on the CA WCC server.
As the number of users and the number of jobs monitored by CA WCC 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.
Hardware Requirements
Depending on the operating system, specific CA WCC server hardware requirements must be met or exceeded for CA WCC to install and run correctly.
The following requirements apply to installing CA WCC on the CA WCC server only. Installing CA EEM on the CA WCC server is not recommended; however, if you plan to install other components such as CA EEM or CA Workload Automation AE on the CA WCC server, the RAM and hard disk space requirements for those components must be added to the RAM and hard disk space requirements listed for CA WCC. Additionally, the fastest processor recommended for any single component should be used.
The requirements that follow are for a typical enterprise with up to two CA Workload Automation AE instances and up to 15,000 jobs in the database of each CA Workload Automation AE instance.
The requirements for a Windows or Linux x86 computer are as follows:
  • 2 GHz or higher processor recommended.
  • Two CPUs minimum, four CPUs recommended for large enterprises.
  • At least 6 GB of RAM; 8 GB recommended.
  • 2 GB of hard disk space for the installation, including CA WCC and the required common components.
The requirements for a Solaris computer are as follows:
  • 2 GHz or higher processor recommended.
  • Two CPUs minimum, four CPUs recommended for large enterprises.
  • At least 6 GB of RAM; 8 GB recommended.
  • 2 GB of hard disk space for the installation, including CA WCC and the required common components.
On UNIX and Linux, the /tmp directory should have a minimum of 500 MB of space available. On Windows, %TEMP% and %TMP% must point to a directory with a minimum of 500 MB of space available.
Software Requirements
The following software requirements must be met for CA WCC to run correctly:
  • Common component CA EEM must be installed and running before you install CA WCC. CA EEM is typically installed on a dedicated server. Common components are installed using the CA Common Components DVD.
  • Adobe Flash Player version 8 or higher must be installed to display graphics in the Monitoring view summary and reports.
  • CA WCC can communicate with CA EEM running in FIPS or non-FIPS mode.
  • CA WCC 11.4 SP5 supports all common components that are installed using the CA Common Components DVD that is distributed with the CA Workload Automation AE Release 11.3.6 SP6 media. For information about the common components, see CA Common Components Release Information
    .
  • On Linux with kernel version 2.4, CA EEM and other common components cannot be upgraded, In this case, CA EEM and other common components must be installed
