Estimate application server size

Follow the data size thresholds in the table below when estimating your needs for an application server. Monitor usage and adjust your settings as necessary. If you are approaching the Enterprise threshold, contact support@jamasoftware.com to ensure optimal performance.

Note

Total system RAM may vary if you are using memory intensive workflows such as reuse, exporting, move items, integrations and batch updates. 

The memory allocation allows for a minimum amount of headroom. If additional software needs to run, take the additional system requirements into account on top of the system requirements stated above. This includes any monitoring and analysis software you might install.  Configure dynamic memory settings as needed in the admin console. 

Use the storage calculator below to get a better idea of your particular needs for the application server.

Important

For Docker's root directory, /var/lib/docker, an XFS filesystem degrades performance for container creation at startup. To avoid this, use EXT4 instead.

Note

Jama Software supports internally hosted network storage mounts (NFS). EBS is suggested. Cloud storage (like EFS) is not supported.

Note

Database sizing is based on your usage patterns and platform; you may wish to consult with your database administrator when determining database size.
