SpectroSERVER and OneClick Requirements

The following table lists the system configurations necessary for ss and OneClick.

10.0 and higher versions support only 64-bit operating systems. They do not support 32-bit operating systems.
SpectroSERVER
and OneClick Servers
The following table lists the system configurations necessary for

64-bit clients are required to take advantage of the increased capacity of 64-bit CA Spectrum 10.1. However, if the additional scale of 64-bit is not needed, and if required, the 32-bit Java client should perform adequately.
As a general rule, the maximum heap size of 32-bit clients on Windows systems will range from 1.4 to 1.6 GB of memory.
If this is exceeded the client will
NO LONGER LAUNCH
until a 64-bit client is utilized.
For more information on memory requirements for the OneClick web server, see Configure OneClick Web Server Memory Settings.
OneClick Considerations
OneClick consists of a web server-based component and a client-based component, each of which requires different software. The OneClick web server includes the following items:
  • Apache Tomcat servlet engine
  • MySQL database management system
  • Java 2 Software Development Kit (SDK)
    DX NetOps Spectrum
    supports only the version of the JDK that ships with OneClick.
The OneClick client includes the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) with Java Web Start.
OneClick and Report Manager Considerations
If you are installing OneClick with Report Manager, see the Install Report Manager
for installation information.

* We highly recommend a separate, dedicated system for the Report Manager. So, install OneClick with Report Manager and use this OneClick instance only for SRM activities.
ª Assumes that Report Manager is monitoring the
SpectroSERVER
(polling for event data and asset change data). Otherwise, 1536 MB is acceptable.
^ Or any comparable Intel x86 1.5 GHz or better processor.

OneClick and Service Manager Considerations
If you are installing OneClick with Service Manager, the following recommendations should be considered:
  • Service Manager must be installed on the computer where the
    SpectroSERVER
    is installed
    and
    on the computer where OneClick is installed. The modeling catalog and all modeling intelligence exist within the
    SpectroSERVER
    database. The historical database and event handling code exists on the OneClick web server, which is installed with OneClick.
  • We recommend that you also install Service Manager when you install Report Manager with OneClick. Installing these components together ensures that the Service and SLA Reporting tables are populated.
For more information about Service Manager, see Service Manager.
