Could someone give me some guidance on the specifications for the
server/host required to run an ArchivesSpace instance?
I'm pricing various Linux hosting services, and need to decide which
service tier will be required.
I'm looking for
- an approximate "best" memory size and
- some way to estimate the growth rate for storage
so I can select the correct service plans for us to start processing.
I see in the Installation Guide that "At least 1024 MB RAM" is recommended,
but is this a 'more would be better' situation?
The defaults in the start script "archivesspace.sh" set the JVM Max Heap to
1024m and PermHeap to 256m so I am guessing that would mean the next tier
host memory size of 2GB Ram would be better.
Is this a correct assumption?
And is there a back-of-the-envelope calculation for predicting the rate
that disk storage requirements will grow? I'm planning on running with a
Thanks in advance for any advice.
