As of version 2022.4.0, the minimum recommended hardware requirements increased from 7 CPU cores & 28.5GB of RAM to 14 CPU cores and 38 GB of RAM. You can still manually change the hardware requirements and resource allocation using the provided helm charts or swarm configuration files. However, the current Black Duck default templates match the new recommendations. For the short to medium term we expect Black Duck to still be able to run successfully on the lesser requirements, but this may change over time. In the future, Black Duck will no longer be officially supporting nor testing with the older hardware specification. Customers who do not have available hardware to meet the new requirements will either need to add additional hardware or modify the orchestration files manually before updating to 2022.4.0.
This new guidance is based current Black Duck 2022.2.0 architecture. It is possible this guidance will be further refined for the 2022.4.0 or subsequent releases. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to Product Management.
