Server Monitoring Pre-requisites

Hardware Requirements

Pre-requisites

Hardware Requirements

Processor and Memory requirements based on the number of monitored servers:

Monitored serversCPU CoresMemory (RAM)
1-228
3-4416
5+832

NOTES: – Installing Server Monitoring on an SSD disk drive is recommended for better performance.

  • Be sure to allocate enough disk space on the server that hosts the Administration Console. The amount of data collected and the size of the SQL database will depend on how many servers are monitored.

  • Best practices dictate that it is ideal to run Server Monitoring on a dedicated server. This prevents other applications from reducing resources available to your monitoring platform.

Operating System

Server Monitoring is compatible with the following Operating Systems:

  • Windows 7 Pro
  • Windows 8/8.1
  • Windows 10 Pro
  • Windows 11 Pro
  • Windows Server 2008 SP2/Small Business Server SP2 or 2008 R2 SP1
  • Windows Server 2012 or 2012 R2
  • Windows Server 2016
  • Windows Server 2019
  • Windows Server 2022

Both 32 and 64 bits architectures are supported.

Network

Only one network port is required: port 7778, which is not an officially registered port and therefore not already assigned to specific services.
