General System Requirements

The codeBeamer installation kit contains all components (database, web-server) required for evaluation.

For additional information please look at Installing.

Operating System

Windows and Linux on 64-bit x86 architectures.

Windows

  • Windows 2019 Server starting from codeBeamer 9.5.0
  • Windows 2016 Server starting from codeBeamer 8.2.1
  • Windows 2012 Server
  • Windows 2008 Server
  • Windows 2003 Server
  • Windows 7

Linux

  • Red Hat Enterprise (RHEL)
  • SuSE Enterprise Linux Server (SLES)
  • CentOS
  • Oracle Linux
  • Ubuntu for long-term deployments (LTS)

It might be necessary to upgrade supported Git, Mercurial and Subversion versions from additional packages.

Database (RDBMS)

  • MySQL, InnoDB engine is required
  • Oracle
  • Derby (Java DB) shipped with codeBeamer for demo purposes, it is not supported for production use.

Client Web Browsers

  • Microsoft Internet Explorer
  • Mozilla Firefox
  • Google Chrome

The settings below are required:

  • Cookies must be enabled
  • Javascript must be enabled

For Mozilla browsers ( up from non-tested Firefox version 70 ), it might be needed to toggle the value of dom.storage.next_gen to false in case there are page elements fails to load ( i.e. new comment window ) due to a known issue in Firefox as described in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/some-pages-or-page-elements-fail-load-after-updating

Hardware Requirements

Storage

SSD or M2 (preferred) disk with RAID is strongly recommended for best performance and reliability. 30-50 GB for database storage and 100-500 GB for documents, attachments and SCM repositories.
The size of the required storage strongly depends on the size of documents, attachments and SCM repositories managed by codeBeamer.

CPU / Memory

Multicore 2.9 GHz Intel Xeon (x86) architecture).

Active/concurrent Users refers to the number of users which are actively (concurrently) working in codeBeamer at a given time, e.g. creating, editing Work Items, adding Comments and/or other artefacts.

The number of registered users (accounts) may be a much higher number than the number if concurrent users, so this guidance should be used to refer to the total number of expected active (concurrent) users.

Performance Measurements

Please refer to codeBeamer ALM's Official Scalability Performance Test Report 2019 about performance measurements with up to 1,000 concurrent users and 10 milliion work items.
