System RequirementsΒΆ

StackStorm requires Ubuntu, RHEL or CentOS Linux. It is not supported on any other Linux distributions. The table below lists the supported Linux versions, along with the Vagrant Boxes and Amazon AWS instances we use for testing.

If you are installing from ISO, perform a minimal installation. For Ubuntu, use the “Server” variant, and only add OpenSSH Server to the base set of packages. All other dependencies will be automatically added when you install StackStorm.

Note

Please note that only 64-bit architecture is supported.

Linux (64-bit) Vagrant Box Amazon AWS AMI
Ubuntu 14.04 bento/ubuntu-14.04 Ubuntu Server 14.04 LTS (HVM)
Ubuntu 16.04 bento/ubuntu-16.04 Ubuntu 16.04 LTS - Xenial (HVM)
RHEL 7 / CentOS 7 bento/centos-7.2 Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7.2 (HVM)
RHEL 6 / CentOS 6 bento/centos-6.7 Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 6 (HVM)

Alternatively, you can use the StackStorm Docker image. You will need at least version 1.13.0 of Docker engine, and optionally docker-compose. See our Docker guide for more information.

This is the recommended minimum sizing for testing and deploying StackStorm:

Testing Production
  • Dual CPU
  • 2GB RAM
  • 10GB storage
  • Recommended EC2: t2.medium
  • Quad core CPU
  • >16GB RAM
  • 40GB storage
  • Recommended EC2: m4.xlarge

Note

If you are planning to add the DC Fabric Automation Suite to your system later, you will need additional RAM. Check the DC Fabric Automation Suite System Requirements

If you split your filesystem into multiple partitions and mount points, ensure you have at least 1GB of free space in /var and /opt. RabbitMQ and MongoDB may not operate correctly without sufficient free space.

By default, StackStorm and related services use these TCP ports:

  • nginx (80, 443)
  • mongodb (27017)
  • rabbitmq (4369, 5672, 25672)
  • postgresql (5432)
  • st2auth (9100)
  • st2api (9101)
  • st2stream (9102)

If any other services are currently using these ports, StackStorm may fail to install or run correctly.
