Best way to install JIRA/Greenhopper/Fisheye/Crucible

I'm looking at install JIRA w/Greenhopper, Fisheye and Crucible.

According to the information online I should:

Install Crucible on a separate machine:

Install Fisheye on the same server as SVN for faster indexing:
https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/FISHEYE/Best+Practices+for+FishEye+Configuration

Install Crucible and Fisheye together:
https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CRUCIBLE/Crucible+and+FishEye

The best practices seem a little contradictory. I'm pretty sure you have to install them together and so far the performance appears to be good enough with Fisheye running on a server separate from SVN. It takes a long time for the initial indexing and if you make changes you have to re-index which will take a long time too.

Also, I couldn't find any best practices for JIRA installation.

Is there really any problem with installing Fisheye/Crucible on another server that has SVN (as well as other apps like continuous integration)? What resources are the issue (memory/CPU/disk space)?

You can certainly run FishEye and SVN on separate servers but the reason why it is best practice to have them on the same server is to remove network latency as a bottle neck for FishEye. FishEye will make numerous calls to svn while it is indexing (both for initial incremental).

If you are unable to host them on the same server, provided diskspace isn't an issue, you could mirror your svn repository to a local repository on the server FishEye runs on and point FishEye at that.

So what's the recommended system architecture for using JIRA with Confluenece, Fisheye and Crucible, and GIT? JIRA on one server, Confluence on one, Fisheye and Crucible together with GIT repository server?

How about JIRA FishEye Plugin? Shall I use this plugin or standalone Fisheye?

We ended up putting Fisheye, Jira and Confluence all on the same server whereas, SVN runs on a separate server, it seems to work out just fine.
