The Application Server specifications outlined in this article are based on these server types:
- Production Server: a live environment where created processes are leveraged by end-users (customers)
- Non-Production Server: non-customer facing environment used for testing and development to assess production readiness
- Repository Server: non-customer-facing environment used to help maintain version control and migrate projects between servers
Consult expertise ahead of server deployment. The deploying organizations' Senior Database Administrator (DBA) should be involved in recommending resources.
Advanced specifications consider the following circumstances:
- Data-heavy environments
- Organizations with long procurement/change request cycles
|Production||3.0 GHz 4-Core CPU||16 GB RAM||100 GB|
|Non-Production||4-Core CPU||8 GB RAM||100 GB|
|Repository||4-Core CPU||8 GB RAM||100 GB|
|Enterprise||8-Core CPU||32 GB AM||Use case dependent|
|Production||D-Series D4s v3 | 3.0 GHz 4-Core vCPU||16 GB RAM||150 GB|
|Non-Production||D-Series D4s v3 | 4-Core vCPU||16 GB RAM||150 GB|
|Repository||D-Series D4s v3 | 4-Core vCPU||16 GB RAM||100 GB|
Amazon Web Services (AWS) Specifications
|Production||t3.xlarge | 4-Core CPU||16 GB RAM||100 GB|
|Non-Production||t3.xlarge | 4-Core CPU||16 GB RAM||50 GB|
|Repository||t3.xlarge | 4-Core CPU||16 GB RAM||50 GB|
.NET Versions for Decisions: Since Decisions is built using .NET, it is mandatory to install the required .NET applications before proceeding with the Decisions installation.
.NET Core SDK: The application also utilizes the .NET Core 6.0 SDK to create Internal and External Web Service References, but it's important to note that this SDK is not necessary for running Decisions.
Database Server and Configuration
|Database Server Type||Server Version Required||Additional Information|
|SQL||SQL Server 2012 SPI Standard or newer||It is supported by Decisions v8.11 and lower.|
|SQL Server 2016 SPI Standard or newer||It is required for Decisions v8.12 and above.|
DB level of at least S3 or P1 is recommended to prevent timeouts for Decisions SQL queries, especially during installation.
DB level T3 is recommended for installation.
|Postgres||Postgres 12 or 13||It is supported by all the Decisions versions.|
|Postgres 14 or 15||It is only supported by Decisions v8.10 and above.|
It is recommended that Microsoft's standard SQL maintenance plan is utilized for database maintenance.
- It is acceptable to install the DB servers and Decisions on the same machine only for development and testing purposes.
- For the Production environment, it is strongly recommended to install the Decisions and DB servers on separate machines. It is advised to allocate at least 4 cores and 16 GB of RAM for the DB server.
Network Ports and Protocols
Depending on the chosen database server, Decisions uses the following default SQL port numbers to connect to the database server.
|Database Server Type||SQL Port|
To modify the SQL port number, update the connection string syntax (myPortNumber) as follows:
When installing locally, Decisions attempts to occupy the following default ports for users to host its service.
These port numbers may be configured during and after installation.
|80||Assigned for HTTP connections|
|443||Assigned for HTTPS connections|
