Groundplex Requirements: Hardware and OS
A Groundplex is a local server running on hardware that you provision. The hardware must meet the following minimum requirements.
|Nodes||Minimum value: 1
Recommended: 2 or more nodes
SnapLogic Project and Enterprise platform package nodes can be configured in the following sizes:
SnapLogic recommends two nodes for high availability. For requirements about clustering nodes, see Node Cluster.
Important: All nodes within a Snaplex must be of the same size.
|RAM||Minimum value: 8GB||Depending on the size, number, and nature of pipelines, more memory (RAM) might be required to maintain an acceptable level of performance.
The memory used depends the volume and size of the documents being processed.
Some Snaps, like the Sort Snap, hold many documents in memory during processing and, therefore, consume more memory.
Note: Contact your SnapLogic Sales Engineer to perform an optimum-sizing analysis based on your requirements.
|CPU||Minimum value: 2 cores||All Snaps execute in parallel in their own threads; therefore, the more cores that are available to the Snaplex, the more performant the system.|
|Disk Space||Minimum value: 40GB
|Local disk space is required for logging and for any Snap that uses the local disk for temporary storage, such as the Sort and Join Snaps.
For details, see Temporary Folder.
Note: SnapLogic does not restrict the disk size of your Groundplex nodes.
- CentOS 6.3 or newer
- Red Hat
- Ubuntu 14.04 or newer
- Windows Server 2016/2019 with a minimum of 8GB RAM.
Large clock differences can also affect communication between the FeedMaster and the JCC nodes.
Date.now() expression language function might be different between Snaplex nodes, and Internal log messages might have skewed timestamps, making it more difficult to debug issues.
