64-bit operating system should be deployed on the servers. Recommended operating system is Windows Server 2008 R2 with latest service pack and latest windows updates.
The SQL server hosting the production and reporting database should be of 64-bit.
Following is the job sizing recommendation:
Data collection job can be scoped to maximum 500 assets.
Data evaluation job can be scoped to maximum 500 assets.
Ensure the following:
Evaluation job does not overlap with other jobs as evaluation is processor intensive operation. Else include a separate CCS Manager with Data Evaluation role.
Any Sync job such as Report data synchronization job or evaluation sync job does not overlap with the Reporting data purge job. This is required to avoid slow performance of the system as both are database-intensive operations.
The following table lists the hardware configurations for CCS servers for small scale deployment.
