our company is planning to get Crucible/Fisheye. We have some questions regarding the best suitable hardware setup in our situation:
- We expect 150+ Fisheye/Crucible Users
- We expect around 100 SVN repositories (not sure yet about wether we will add the repository roots to Crucible/Fisheye, or rather subfolders of the repositories - which would increase this number even more)
What hardware setup would you advise in our situation? We would like to have a setup which is ready for the years to come, since we will buy the hardware especially for this purpose (not using a vm).
Could you give us a hint on an optimal hardware setup with optimal performance?
PS: I am aware of the answer to this question https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/98536/hardware-system-requirements-for-crucible-for-10-100-users- still i would like to get a more specific answer, since the answer simply seems to reproduce the (minimum?) requirements for Fisheye.
In our own internal testing of various FishEye hardware, we've found huge improvements in performance when we use an SSD to store the FishEye cache data on. FishEye is more or less I/O bound, so I'd strongly recommend you get the fastest disk you can within your budget.
Since SSDs are prone to fail a little more often than regular HDDs, it would be recommended that you take nightly backups, that include your caches, to a separate disk. This is easily configured in FishEye.
The other constraint is definitely RAM - with more RAM, FishEye's caches can grow larger, and thereby need to hit your disk or db less. So AS Andris suggests, allocated 4GB or more to the JVM will help keep things humming.
Also - the more CPUs and the faster they are, the better performance you'll see. Again, try and get the fastest within your budget.
Everything below is tested on Ubuntu 17.10. I prefer to use Jira in a docker container because: 1. I can install Jira with a couple of commands. 2. I can start and stop Jira just by starting and s...
