Has anyone run JIRA on a LEB?

Has anyone run JIRA on a LEB?

NekkiNekki Moderator
edited October 2012 in General

Work want to evaluate JIRA but getting a new VM provisioned is aggro, so just to see if works for us I'm considering getting a LEB for a few months while we take a look at it.

JIRI needs a couple of GB of RAM and a multicore CPU (which I guess rules out the cheapest KimSufi), so I was thinking about one of ChicagoVPS 2GB specials or something similar, but before I do, I wondered if anyone had run it off a LEB before, and what performance was like?

Cheers in advance for any advice.

EDIT: Also needs a decent HDD, 7200rpm minimum.

  • Does jira run on openvz?

  • Not sure about JIRA but Confluence wouldn't work at all on any less than 1GB RAM and didn't like Vserver either :/

  • Why not use something like redmine instead :P.. jira looks expensive.

    ChicagoVPS is decent...ehehe.. stay away from their buffalo location though.

    No idea tbh, hence me asking for opinions. I know it runs on VMware as a supplier's using it, but that's it

    I figured I'd need a reasonable amount of RAM, the documentation says JIRA can run on 300MB, but I don't fancy my chances.

    Someone more important than me makes the purchasing decisions :-/

  • Jira is all Java so you will need a lot of ram and I remember openvz and Java not getting along so well.

    We use Jira at work, it seems popular with enterprises (who can afford it :) )

  • I believe Java can behave itself (or at least try to behave) with vSwap, so you may want to see if you can get a provider that does vSwap.

  • Why not try it with on demand instead of self hosted?

    On Demand is not an option long-term for a number of reasons, and we want to be sure we can manage the download version ourselves before we buy.

    @Nekki I agree, but 'managing' the downloaded version is just a matter of getting hardware that is powerful enough. I just started using on demand today to try the program to see if I even like it before I bother with installing it on our own hardware.

    @Corey I imagine you're right in terms of the management, but I need to be able to evidence that to non-technical types.

  • @Nekki Yes, but you will also be spending some of those non-technical types' money in the process :)

    We can provide you a hosted JIRA solution. Pricing depends on user tier. We can provide a 15 day trial.

    Yes, it runs on a LEB.

    OnDemand is good for general use if you don't need customizations etc. If you don't need specific plugins. However, lately they changed the header and got lots of complaints.

    Hit me up with any JIRA / Confluence / Atlassian questions. Happy to answer.

    Don't do it. It's got lots of issues. I mean this particular special LEB you are referring to. Some others work fine.

    @24khost said: Does jira run on openvz?

    It does, but prefer on VSwap, otherwise it's a memory sucker.

    Personally, I haven't had any problems with CVPS's 2GB Special.

    Are you running JIRA on it? This is what I'm referring to. We did tests on it anyway. I was not referring to other applications. Not having a go at them. Just answering the question.

    Yup, but that's not an issue for them, especially when we're talking about less than $50.

    I appreciate the offer, but ultimately we'll be running it in-house if we like it and are able to manage it that way, so I need to have an environment to setup and configure it from scratch. Using an externally-hosted solution isn't viable for us.

    all our server at work are VMs. Our JIRA is running on a 4gb ram virtual machine. although I did not check how much it is eating

    Twitter Bootstrap Themes for your software projects. I recommend Prometeus and Catalyst Host

  • Im running confluence at home on a 512 mb vmware instance. Only 4 users however.

    @Nekki if it can help i'm having crowd + confluence + Jira running on the same 8GB ESX VM for around 200 users.

    Me neither, working rock-solid.

    A lot of organizations use it a a collaboration tool. It is an Enterprise Wiki.

    There are a lot of use cases, as an example, people build documentation from it and export it to PDF for client viewing.

    Atlassian themselves use it as their online documentation repository.

    What sort of usage do you have in terms of projects, users and bugs?

    Running JIRA and Confluence on OpenVZ here, works fine, no issues. Specs: ProxMox VE Host, OpenVZ VM's. Both had 512 MB of RAM (CentOS) and 30GB HDD. I've upped the ram for both of the VM's to 24GB, just because they never use it at the same time and the VM host has 48 GB :P

    And, if you can do the hosted plans of JIRA, Greenhopper or Confluence, try those. It saves you the hassle of managing it, but it runs solid. For 3 external projects I'm involved in they run hosted variants of JIRA and Confluence.

    And Atlassian is doing a nice integration of all their applications. When you have the complete suite, you can link all apps together to make them nicely integrated.

    Just started using it this week, have like 5 users and a few bugs. I don't think the resource consumption would increase that much though even if our users were more active and had more bugs there.
