We are thinking about purchacing Crucible and wondering what is the maximum repository size Crucible can handle?
What is the maximum number of repositories Crucible can handle?
Do we need some kind of a backend database to use Crucible?
Thanks a lot in advance.
I confirmed the following information: The Crucible Starter will work with both Starter and Commercial FishEye installations and will mirror FishEye's repository restrictions (e.g. if working with a FishEye Starter with limited repos, Crucible will only support that number of repos, if commercial FishEye then there will be no repo number restrictions).
In case you are running Crucible without FishEye, you will have only the restrictions of the Crucible license (so, for example, you will have no limits about number of repositories and committers).
To be clear when reading my answers below, I'll refer sometimes to Crucible and sometimes to FishEye. They are actually the same application (FishEye/Crucible), but each part of the application offers its functionalities (FishEye for repository management, Crucible for code review), each one having its own license.
Regarding the repository size, FishEye/Crucible doesn't state a limit. If you are concerned about performance and actions you could take to handle large repositories, I think the following three documents will offer valuable information on this:
Best practices for Crucible configuration
Tuning FishEye performance
Improve FishEye scan performance
Regarding the number of repositories, FishEye states a limit of 5 repositories, with the maximum of 10 committers per repository for the Starter License, as can be seen at https://www.atlassian.com/licensing/fisheye#downloadlicenses-1<br< a="">>The Crucible Licensing document doesn't let it clear if it has the same limitation of 5 repositories for a Starter License, but I'll request our technical writers to revise it (You can check this document at https://www.atlassian.com/licensing/crucible#downloadlicenses-1). Either way, for other licenses, there is no limit in the number of the repositories you can have.
Regarding the use of a database, the point 4 of the Best practices document above recommends the use of an external database. You can check how to configure it for Crucible at https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CRUCIBLE/Migrating+to+an+external+database
