DHIS2 Server Configuration [Memory and CPU allocation]

Dear all

I have around 100 users and I planned to configure DHIS2, so I want the following information.

  1. What amount of Memory and processor capacity do I need
  2. I need hint on memory allocation for java and postgres
  3. I need processor configuration hint

Hello Getachew,

There is a recommendation https://docs.dhis2.org/master/en/implementer/html/install_server_specifications.html

And a guide here https://docs.dhis2.org/master/en/implementer/html/dhis2_implementation_guide.html

Get the best configuration according to your budget. But if the budget is lean, I would recommend going for a VPS provider like digital ocean or AWS and use the small instance recommendation (4GB RAM, 4 CPU, 60GB SSD)

The recommendation here https://docs.dhis2.org/master/en/implementer/html/install_server_setup.html assumes 16GB RAM so you can proportion according to the amount of RAM you will have acquired.

All the best!
