Server Specifications


#1

I documented a few server configurations in the deployment wiki: https://github.com/openfoodfoundation/ofn_deployment/wiki/Server-Specifications

Feel free to add/update your specifications here. It’s also a good place to discuss the requirements and how we can keep them low.


Diagnosing and fixing a server with insufficient memory
#2

Our staging server has 2GB RAM but currently no swap space (your staging has 4GB). Would you suggest its important to add some swap to our config?

I assume you have more RAM and less swap on production for speed…


#3

Yes, adding swap space should solve your problem on staging. On a production server I would give more RAM. We should not need 8GB, but somehow the memory usage creeps up over time. I hope we will solve that soon. @RohanM worked on that.


#4

@maikel could you please note here or even better update the wiki page with what OS the server(s) are using? I think its good to know what options have been used.

The ofn_deployment notes mention Ubuntu PrecisePangolin but I’m wondering if new installs could use TrustyTahr? And current machines be updated?


#5

We still use Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin and updated the wiki page. If someone tried another version, please post.
