Environment requirements for Atlassian products


We are planning to install each of our Atlassian products to different linux virtual servers.

The question is, what are the requirements to Atlassian products in server side? How much memory we need and how about size of the disk?

Atlassian products that we use: Jira, Confluence, Bamboo, Crowd, Fisheye.

Hey there, you're going to have to dome reading, as I cant possible understand your environment. You may have a 100 users or 10000, have 3 projects or 3000 etc. You may have no documents or 10,000,000.

Different virtual servers are fine, but be aware that a loaded VM = a loaded physical server. If you can, try and split things like Bamboo/Fisheye to separate physical servers/blades, they can hog CPU (of course, depending on your usage, for example, a while back I was indexing 20Gb+ sourcecode, it took Fisheye something nuts like 2weeks at 24x7 maxed CPU. Imaging poor users trying to use confluence if your physical machine just happened to only have 2 cores virtualised, both of which were swamped...)

p.s. If you are fighting a budget and want to eek out performance, be aware that loading plugins into products can and will adversely affect your memory footprint.

Thanks for your answer!

In Jira we have 200 users, 70 projects and 10 000 issues now. The size of the attachements-folder is 1,1Gb.

and your growth is what accross that? Answer that and you have guidlines to work with from the resources linked, each application is different. Please tick if this answers the question.
