Component Interaction

Teamcenter Engineering System Component Interaction

The following slide shows how processes are connected and provides an overview
to illustrate the following points:

Portal clients connect to imanserver similar to the way Web clients

connect to a Web server.

Motif clients connect directly with the Oracle database and

Teamcenter Engineering data vaults using SQLNet and

NFS (or iMANFS) respectively. Custom clients using the

apiserver process are similar to Motif clients.

Teamcenter Engineering Servers

Dedicated Oracle Servers

Oracle to run stand alone is the goal, is the
preferred way to run oracle, ‘best practices’.

One development env, a matching production

Have had instances with d0ora2 where a stand
alone environment would have prevented

Stand alone server is the cdf and minos model.

Prevents competition for resources with the
database, decreasing potential downtime.

The critical decision for the Teamcenter Engineering implementation team is the

sizing and placement of Oracle, vault and application servers. (for example, Portal,

Web). Again, this is highly dependent on network infrastructure and Teamcenter

Engineering usage profiles. Network traffic between the Teamcenter Engineering

shared servers and the Oracle server is proportionally greater than that between a

server and its clients. Therefore, the network connection between Teamcenter

Engineering servers and the Oracle server should be high bandwidth and low
latency. Teamcenter Engineering server communication with the clients is more
tolerant of low
speed, high
latency networks.

Planning Teamcenter Engineering Servers

Vault Servers

The vault servers house the ‘real’ data,
and will be supported by the cad divisions,
not dsg.

Non DbServer Support

Propose to run the non db server apps on a
separate NT machine(s). One NT for
production, the other for development and
other instances.

Apache web server



Teamcenter Engineering Portal Servers

Portal implementations have a variety of configuration options, as
previously described. Like the Teamcenter Engineering Web server,
the Teamcenter Engineering Portal server is also computationally
intensive and is best served by a machine with a high SPECint rate
(throughput) rating. Portal servers also require significant amount of
memory (multiple gigabytes) to support large numbers of users.

Development Environment

The TeamCenter development
environment will mirror the production
environment to enable routine testing and
application of patches, etc.

1 database server machine, 1 NT for other

Potentially servering dev, int, and train

One license vs. duals


1 license to support


1 license to mess up both production and
development. This is not in line with dsg’s
standards and procedures.

Working with vendor to supply a dev license
for free, limiting # of users, but non temporary.

Dual licenses will allow us to separate out
developers and trainers from production.
