Required Packages and Justification
IBM Cloud Infrastructure Center install and configure packages according to its own requirement:
|packages and settings
|rpm sudo is required
|Many functions within IBM Cloud Infrastructure Center require elevated privilege to execute; this requires the installation and use of the sudo package.
|rpm apache's TimeOut configuration
|The default timeout value of 3600 is used in order to assure completion of long-running tasks, such as the deployment of large virtual machines.
|net-snmp is installed due to a package dependency chain inside s390utils (which requires s390utils-osasnmpd).
|rpm xorg-x11-* and libX*
|You can safely remove those packages on management and compute nodes through rpm -e --nodeps command.
