MSSQL

If your AssetExplorer runs on an MSSQL setup, then make sure to host the database server in a separate machine under the same network as the application server. The DB server machine configuration solely depends on no of databases configured and usage. Please consult with your DBA or Microsoft MSSQL support for system requirements.

Supported MSSQL Versions : 2012, 2014, 2016, 2017, 2019 and 2022.

PostgreSQL

Since PostgreSQL 9.2 requires users to modify kernel resources to allot required resources for Postgres server,
i. Add the the below mentioned entry in /etc/sysctl.conf
kernel.shmmax=536870912
kernel.shmall=131072
ii. Execute sudo sysctl -p /etc/sysctl.conf to reload the configured change.

Note : This is only applicable for Linux OS installations that use bundled Postgres.

How to enable read committed snapshot isolation (RCSI)


All MSSQL databases usually have lock issues, which may affect an application’s optimal performance. To avoid such performance issues in AssetExplorer, enable the read committed snapshot isolation (RCSI) by following these steps:

This might take a while to complete and also requires downtime, so please schedule it over a weekend.
 

  • Stop AssetExplorer application.
  • Log in to SQL Management studio.
  • Take the AssetExplorer database offline by executing

    USE master GO ALTER DATABASE <db_name> SET OFFLINE WITH ROLLBACK IMMEDIATE GO

  • Enable the read committed snapshot by running

    ALTER DATABASE <db_name> SET READ_COMMITTED_SNAPSHOT ON WITH ROLLBACK IMMEDIATE GO
     
  • Bring the database online using

    USE master GO ALTER DATABASE <db_name> SET ONLINE GO
     
  • Check if you have enabled RCSI successfully by running the following query
    SELECT is_read_committed_snapshot_on FROM sys.databases WHERE [name] = '<db_name>'
