Abstract from the paper's introduction section:
This whitepaper is designed as a supplement to the Build Forge Online Help Documentation. This document should not be seen as a replacement for the Online Help Manual. Build Forge Administrators and Release Engineering teams should review this document before making any changes to a new or existing environment. The information supplied is not based on IBM recommendations. This white paper is intended to assist in creating scalable and manageable Build Forge environments. The paper is broken down into individual components due to certain software requirements. Build Forge out of the box requires: Database backend, Java Application Server (Tomcat), Web Server (Apache with PHP), and Precompiled Perl Executables (Perl Engine). Each component has its own unique options when considering management and scalability.
After reviewing this whitepaper, apply changes to a test environment before releasing in production. Some of the topics discussed in this paper result in data removal and aggressive purging. Please note that these topics should be discussed prior to implementation.
