IMPORTANT – HP Helion Codar Deployment Guidelines
HP strongly recommends that you install the HP Helion Codar database server on a physical server, not on a
virtual machine to get good response from Codar. If you choose to deploy the HP Helion Codar (one or more
nodes with the Cloud Service Management Console) on a virtual machine, you must reserve CPU and memory
resources exclusively for Codar, so that the product can function with reasonable throughput. Use the guidelines
below for resource reservation for a Codar instance with the following load characteristics:
CPU: 4 CPUs, 3.0 GHz per CPU
Memory: 8 GB
This configuration for HP Helion Codar Application Server can support the following load:

Six simultaneous provisioning requests

30 Subscriptions generated per hour

Service components in design processed < 120 per hour

Total REST API call-back from HP Operations Orchestration to HP Helion Codar for single VM provision
of < 18
For higher loads, you may need a system with more hardware resources or additional Codar nodes in a cluster.
Please refer to the HP Helion Codar Configuration Guides and High Availability Guides for additional details.
