|For best results, the underlying system should have the following characteristics:|
For best operation, the base machine should have one more Intel-compatible processor (core) than the number of virtual engines configured.
• Unit Test Standard (one virtual engine) is best used with a machine that has at least two processors (cores).
• Unit Test Specialty (three virtual engines) is best used with a machine that has at least four processors (cores).
The base machine must have at least 3 GB of real memory.
• 1 GB is required for the 64-bit RedHat or openSUSE Linux
• 1-2 GB is required for the System z operating system, depending on the size of the development system.
The base machine must have available disk space for the System z operating system
• Minimum 80GB free disk space
At least one Ethernet adapter is required for OSA operation.
Base machine requires the Rational Developer for z Unit Test 1091 USB hardware key (1091 token) in order to operate. A USB port must be available for the 1091 token whenever Rational Developer for System z Unit Test environment is operating.
• The 1091 token can be moved between different machines to support different hardware and/ or software configurations, but only the Rational Developer for System z Unit Test software in the machine with the 1091 USB hardware key will operate.
• The 1091 token contains a mechanism to defeat time cheating. Assure the clocks are set reasonably close to avoid problems when moving the token between systems.
IBM Rational Developer For System z Unit Test has been tested on the following hardware:
• Lenovo ThinkPad W Series
• IBM System x 3500 M1, 3500 M2, 3650 M1, or 3650 M2
IBM Rational Developer for System z Unit Test is licensed only for development and test of applications that run on IBM z/OS. The Program may not be used to run production workloads of any kind, nor more robust development workloads including without limitation production module builds, pre-production testing, stress testing, or performance testing..
