|Oracle® Communications Service Broker Installation Guide
Part Number E23522-02
This chapter describes the hardware and software requirements for Oracle Communications Service Broker.
Servers can be deployed on the following CPU architectures:
Oracle Sun SPARC 64 bit
Each server should have redundant network interface cards.
The following are the recommendations for each physical server in a production system. These are guidelines only:
Dual quad core processors with 16 GB of RAM
2 GB of free disk space for the installation
The following requirements apply to specific server types:
Extra disk space is required for processing servers if you store Service Detail Records (SDRs) in files on the server. In general, 10 GB is sufficient for handling SDRs. However, the actual disk space you need depends on the server's capacity, the amount of traffic, and how many SDR files are stored on the server.
See information about configuring SDR logging in Oracle Communications Service Broker System Administrator's Guide.
A Dialogic TDM signaling board and Dialogic software are required for signaling servers that run in a TDM-based network.
See "Installing Dialogic Hardware and Software for TDM Networks" for more information.
The stand-alone Administration Console and Web Administration Console can be deployed on the following CPU architectures:
Oracle Sun SPARC 64 bit
The following are the recommendations for each physical computer that hosts an Administration Console. These are guidelines only:
Quad core processors with 8 GB of RAM
300 MB of free disk space for the installation
Service Broker requires the following software:
Network Time Protocol (NTP) client
Service Broker requires that all servers accurately synchronize their system clocks to a common time source, to within one or two milliseconds. Oracle recommends using an NTP client or daemon and synchronizing all Service Broker servers to a common NTP server.
Caution:Synchronizing system clocks to within one or two milliseconds is critical for proper functioning of the system. If you do not synchronize server clocks, the system may display unexpected behavior.
Service Broker relies upon a shared library of the underlying operating system to provide Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) support.
If you are implementing a solution that uses Diameter over SCTP, you need to ensure that the operating system includes the following library:
If needed, install the shared library on the operating system of each managed server host machine.
The Oracle Universal Installer imposes additional system requirements and library dependencies. For example, it requires 500 MB of swap space to be available on the installation target system.
For more information about the Oracle Universal Installer, see Oracle Universal Installer and OPatch User's Guide.
Service Broker can be used with the following operating systems:
Oracle Enterprise Linux 5.5
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.4 or 5.5
Oracle Solaris 10
The JDKs are bundled with Service Broker. The Java version used is 1.6.0_30 and JRockit R28.2.0.
The Web Administration Console can be used with the following Web Browsers:
Microsoft Internet Explorer
Table 2-1 lists the supported combinations of CPU type and JVM, along with the name of the installer archive file for the combination.
