Normal text looks like this. Text that a computer outputs is in a fixed-width type like this. Text that you type into a computer is in key input like this, or
strikethrough key input if you can't see it, such as with passwords.
Code looks like this. Placeholders (text that should not be taken literally) is in fixed width italics like this.
|login: fflinstone||The literal username is "fflinstone"|
||The password won't be displayed|
|bash:~$ cd /boot||The command you'll enter is "cd /boot"|
|password: ProperRootPasswordHere||The root password isn't provided here.|
|bash:/boot# mv vmlinux vmlinuz.YYYY-MM-DD-HHMMSS||Replace the placeholder with the date.|
Alpaca Server System Requirements
The minimum system requirements to run the Alpaca Server are as follows:
- Storage: 100 GB
- CPU: 2
- RAM: 4 GB + 2x PERM_ALLOCATED_SIZE
You can determine the current PERM_ALLOCATED_SIZE on a Broadworks Application server using the
- email@example.com$ ttIsql
- Command> dssize
The following values are in KB: PERM_ALLOCATED_SIZE: 1048576 PERM_IN_USE_SIZE: 71861 PERM_IN_USE_HIGH_WATER: 71944 TEMP_ALLOCATED_SIZE: 348160 TEMP_IN_USE_SIZE: 28888 TEMP_IN_USE_HIGH_WATER: 32368
In this example, our PERM_ALLOCATED_SIZE is 1048576 kB (1.05 GB), so this system requires 6 GB (4 + 2(1)) of RAM.
BroadWork's Host IDs
A perpetual ECG License requires the Host Ids of all of the BroadWorks Application Servers that Alpaca will be communicating with.
There are two ways to retrieve the Host IDs: From the XSP_CLI and directly off of the Application Server.
All host ids used by an XSP are located at:
- firstname.lastname@example.org$ bwadmin
- XSP_CLI> cd System/Licensing
- XSP_CLI/System/Licensing> get
customerName = Engineers Consulting Group licenseType = HARD expirationDate = 09/16/2017 Host Id ============ AAAAAAAA-BBBB-1111-CCCC-123456ABCDEFG 1 entries found.
Specific AS host ids can be seen from the AS via /usr/local/broadworks/bw_base/sbin/bwdd | grep UUID or dmidecode | grep UUID.
