Installation for Enterprise Data Preparation

Installation for Enterprise Data Preparation

Verify System Requirements

Verify System Requirements

Verify that your environment meets the minimum system requirements for the installation process, temporary disk space, port availability, databases, and application service hardware.
For more information about product requirements and supported platforms, see the Product Availability Matrix on Informatica Network: https://network.informatica.com/community/informatica-network/product-availability-matrices

Enterprise Data Catalog System Requirements

Verify that your machine meets the minimum system requirements to install the Enterprise Data Catalog services.
The system requirements differ based on the following conditions:
If the Informatica Domain, data nodes, and processing nodes are on the same machine with two million assets in the catalog
The minimum memory requirement for the Linux operating system is 56 GB RAM. The minimum disk space required is 185 GB. The number of CPU cores required is 24.
If the Informatica Domain, data nodes, and processing nodes are on different machines
The minimum memory requirement for the Linux operating system is 24 GB for a cluster node and 32 GB for the machine on which Informatica domain runs. The minimum disk space required is 125 GB. The number of CPU cores required is 8 cores for a cluster node and 16 cores for the machine on which the Informatica domain runs.
Data Asset Analytics Repository Database Server System Requirements
The minimum system requirements for the machine that hosts the Data Asset Analytics repository database is based on the number of assets in the catalog and the database type. For information about the hardware requirements such as the number of CPU cores and the memory, see the Performance Tuning Parameters for Data Asset Analytics section of the
Enterprise Data Catalog Performance Tuning Guide
.
Advanced Scanners Requirements
Before you generate PNG visualizations, perform the following steps to install the additional libraries and rebuild the fonts cache on the machine:
  1. Run the following command:
    # install required fonts sudo yum install fontconfig dejavu-sans-fonts dejavu-serif-fonts
    to install the following libraries:
    • fontconfig
    • dejavu-sans-fonts
    • dejavu-serif-fonts
  2. Run the following command:
# rebuild fonts cache fc-cache -f -v
to rebuild the fonts cache.

Enterprise Data Preparation System Requirements

Verify that your machine meets the minimum system requirements to install the Enterprise Data Preparation services.
The system requirements differ based on the following conditions:
If the Informatica Domain and Hadoop cluster are on the same machine
The minimum memory requirement for the Linux operating system is 32 GB RAM. The minimum disk space required is 150 GB. The number of CPU cores required is 24.
If the Informatica Domain and Hadoop cluster are on different machines
The minimum memory requirement for the Linux operating system is 24 GB for a cluster node and 32 GB for the machine on which Informatica domain runs. The minimum disk space required is 100 GB. The number of CPU cores required is 8 cores for a cluster node and 16 cores for the machine on which the Informatica domain runs.
