i've got a question about the hardware requirements for crowd. We want to connect 3 ADs and 1 LDAP directory with Crowd and Crowd will support 1 application. The amount of users will be around 5000 (daily usage)
Can anyone give me information about the required CPU/Core and the RAM for the operating system?
We have two instances of Crowd (v1 and v2) as well as MySQL running simultaneously on an old Sun Fire V215 with only 4GB of memory. It's hit by at least a dozen apps and our org has about 11k users. Load is never a problem—we have several syncing apps which hammer it nightly (adding/removing users, etc.)
So long as you're using Crowd 2 and not Crowd 1, pretty much anything made in the past few years should be fine.
I've found that it's more RAM. The more RAM allows it to cache things more often. It's mostly user directories and hence as long as it can fit it into cache (not disk and not external LDAP) it'll be fast. If performance isn't an issue, it doesn't really need anything fast to run.
