Hitachi Ops Center system requirements

 

The requirements for Hitachi Ops Center fall into two categories: general (that apply to both OVA and installer environments) and OVA-specific.

Verify that your environment meets the system requirements before beginning the installation process.

Conventions for storage capacity values

 

Physical storage capacity values (for example, disk drive capacity) are calculated based on the following values:

Physical capacity unit

Value

1 kilobyte (KB)

1,000 (103) bytes

1 megabyte (MB)

1,000 KB or 1,0002 bytes

1 gigabyte (GB)

1,000 MB or 1,0003 bytes

1 terabyte (TB)

1,000 GB or 1,0004 bytes

1 petabyte (PB)

1,000 TB or 1,0005 bytes

1 exabyte (EB)

1,000 PB or 1,0006 bytes

Logical capacity values (for example, logical device capacity, cache memory capacity) are calculated based on the following values:

Logical capacity unit

Value

1 block

512 bytes

1 cylinder

Mainframe: 870 KB

Open-systems:

  • OPEN-V: 960 KB
  • Others: 720 KB

1 KB

1,024 (210) bytes

1 MB

1,024 KB or 1,0242 bytes

1 GB

1,024 MB or 1,0243 bytes

1 TB

1,024 GB or 1,0244 bytes

1 PB

1,024 TB or 1,0245 bytes

1 EB

1,024 PB or 1,0246 bytes

Hitachi Ops Center general requirements (OVA and installer)

 
NoteIf you plan to install Ops Center Analyzer (v10.7.0 or later) or Automator (v10.8.0 or later) on a host where a Hitachi Command Suite (HCS) product prior to v8.8.3 is installed, you should update HCS to v8.8.3 first.

Hitachi Ops Center server hardware requirements

Caution:

  • When you run the analytics_install.sh command, do not install Analyzer detail view server on the same disk where the operating system is installed. You must install the software on an unformatted physical disk. Do not install anything else on this partition.
  • The disk must have more than 5 GB available (with disk usage less than 95%)
  • Do not create these directories on a Network File System (NFS) partition.
  • The installer retrieves the partition details and checks the free disk space. For example, if:
    • the /tmp and /usr/local directories are mounted on the P1 partition, it must have a minimum of 1524 MB free.
    • the /home directory is mounted on the P2 partition, it must have a minimum of 100 MB free.

Note: For host-based backups, we recommend that Linux source nodes have a Logical Volume Manager (LVM) on each volume. A minimum of 10 GB of free space is required in the "unused" portion of the LVM in addition to the required space for the allocated storage area. For example, if 100 GB of usable storage is required, then the total disk size is 110 GB.

Hardware requirements based on system scale

 

The following table provides guidelines for determining the size of your environment based on the number of monitoring targets. Based on the sizing and scalability recommendations, you can identify the hardware requirements and scale your Ops Center Analyzer environment to meet workload demands.

The memory and disk space requirements vary depending on the managed resources.

For example:

  • A large number of volumes will require a sizable database.
  • If you decrease the interval at which you obtain performance information, the volumes occupy more disk space in the database.

If the Analyzer server and Analyzer detail view server are installed on the same host and you are only monitoring storage systems, you might be able to decrease the memory required for the Analyzer OVA, Analyzer server, or Analyzer detail view server. (These requirements are described in the Ops Center Analyzer Installation and Configuration Guide.)
