I am running RT on a small machine now, but have been tasked with
upgrading the hardware to improve performance as it becomes more visible
outside of my department.

We are a solaris shop, I run apache with mod_perl, all RT-related
software is up-to-date (as of 2 weeks ago).

So, my question is this. When looking at new hardware, what are the
hardware parameters that are considered most important for RT

SUN has a tutorial on RT on their bigadmin website.
Some days/weeks ago, someone from SUN posted a hardware-setup for their
internal RT setup.

IIRC, 2*R420, fully spec’ed …
If you have the money, go for it :wink:

You can always buy one of their Dual-Xeons or new Opterons and use
Solaris x86 - I’m pretty sure, they’ll be able to help you with that,


One of our original dev machines was an Ultra 10 with 1 gig of RAM, but
we now use E420R’s, fully specc’d, not becuase RT needs it, but because
we had them spare in the lab following an upgrade to another production

RAM is definately the most important thing
