Lotus Workplace 1.1 Prerequisites

Server hardware requirements

This section describes the memory, processor, and disk space requirements for a server that runs Lotus Workplace 1.1 products.

Memory requirements

A computer running Lotus Workplace 1.1. products requires a minimum of 2 GB of RAM. For better performance, more than 2 GB is recommended. Virtual memory or swap space should be at least double the amount of RAM.

Processor requirements

An Intel® Pentium® 4 or equivalent processor is required. System performance, especially response time, depend heavily on the model, speed, and number of processors used. More recent processors such as Intel Xeon and Intel Xeon MP, will result in better response times than a Pentium 4. Dual and quad processors result in better response times than a single processor.

Workplace Collaborative Learning minimum recommended configuration

For Workplace Collaborative Learning, the minimum recommended configuration for 100 concurrent users on Windows or Linux operating systems is a three-system deployment as follows.

Computer 1

This computer runs IBM® HTTP Server, WebSphere® Application Server, and the Learning and Delivery servers. The minimum processor and memory requirements for this computer are:

    • Dual Intel Xeon 1.6 Ghz processors
    • 2 GB of RAM
Computer 2

This computer runs the Learning Database Management System. The processor and memory requirements for this computer are:

    • Dual Intel Xeon MP 1.6 Ghz processors
    • 4 GB of RAM
Computer 3

This computer runs the HTTP Server, WebSphere Application Server, WebSphere Portal and the three Workplace Collaborative Learning portlets. The minimum processor and memory requirements for this computer are:

    • Intel Pentium 4
    • 2 GB of RAM
Server disk space requirements

The following table lists the minimum disk space requirements for each software component that is part of the Lotus Workplace 1.1 product installation. This table does not include the disk space required for the database product, for example, IBM DB2®.
