Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 859778
Update requirements for RHEVM reports?
Last modified: 2014-03-25 03:15:15 EDT
Description of problem:
In the version of the Administration Guide released for beta 1 we listed the following requirements for JasperSoft reports clients :
"""The Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager Reports tool supports the following browsers:
In Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.7 - Firefox 3.6
In Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 - Firefox 3.6
In Windows XP - Internet Explorer 8
In Windows 7 - Internet Explorer 8 and Internet Explorer 9
In Windows Server 2008 - Internet Explorer 8 and Internet Explorer 9"""
I am not 100% sure how applicable these are any more but given the integration of reporting functionality with the Administration Portal I think these requirements may need to be updated.
The Administration Portal requirements have been updated - it now requires FF 10+ or IE 8+. The change to the FF requirement also means the RHEL version requirements increase to 5.8+ and 6.2+ because prior releases don't have FF10 (5.8 and 6.2 are EUS releases which have been updated to include it).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Can you please take a look at these requirements and let us know what you think we should change?
(In particular - should the requirements for reporting match those for the Admin Portal. If not, what requirements should be listed for reporting clients)
Just a reminder that we're packaging this on the 3rd of October.
We pre-emptively made the requirements match in the documentation. The Jasper Reports Portal now requires FF10+ just like the Administration Portal does.
Why was everything changed from rhevm reports to jasperreports in the guide (it wasn't like that last version)?
The basic system requirments are also changed. Users should add additional memory to JBoss.
Hey, I'm moving this back to ON_QA because I haven't got the required information and I did update the document with updated browser requirements.
John, if that won't cut it, then I'll close this bug with insufficient data.
As I understand correctly, this BZ started with supported browsers, and now is about the memory adjustments/requirements for the jboss running the reports server.
About the memory- basically as stated above the reports are installed (for 3.1 as well) on the same container as the rhevm itself so I don't think there should be separate requirements for the reports. but when/if users encounter memory/performance issues they should be directed to a KB instructing them how to increase the JVM memory.
About the browsers - jasper server supports a bigger variety of browser than RHEVM, so it should not be a problem.
