Ascent® 7.0 Release Script for Oracle Content Services 10g Release Notes
Oracle Content Services Requirements
The Ascent 7.0 Release Script for Oracle Content Services 10g requires Oracle Collaboration Suite
Content Services 10g, version 10.1.2 or later.
This release script was tested using Oracle Content Services 10.1.2.2.1 running under Redhat
Enterprise Linux 4.
Minimum Hardware Requirements
Hardware requirements identified for Oracle Content Services are primarily based on performing
collaboration tasks and storing electronic documents. In comparison, using Oracle Content
Services for imaging involves much higher rates of incoming transactions, and larger file sizes.
Therefore, when using Oracle Content Services for imaging with Ascent Capture, the
recommended minimum hardware requirements are higher. Specifically, the minimum hardware
requirements for the Oracle Content Services10g server are as follows:
Two (2) Pentium 4 class processors in a dual processor configuration
3.6 Gbytes RAM
Increasing the number or instances of Ascent Release Servers may not increase overall transaction
rates unless additional CPU and memory resources are added to the Oracle Content Services
server. Using less than the recommended minimum requirements may result in performance
issues that actually reduce overall transaction rates.
Additional consideration should be given to the ability of the system to interact with users of
Oracle Content Services while Ascent Capture is concurrently releasing large number of new
documents. In such a scenario, consider using the Ascent Capture "timed release" feature so
documents are released at a time when the Oracle Content Services system is not heavily needed
by interactive users. Additional CPU and memory may be required if increased interaction ability
