SiteAudit Platform Requirements

 

Platform Requirements Guidelines

The following platform requirements serve as guidelines and represent the minimum specifications that should be considered, based on the number of printers being monitored. While these requirements are sufficient for most environments, it may be necessary to increase the resources, such as RAM or hard drive space, depending on usage patterns. 

Netaphor support is available to assist in evaluating performance and determining whether the assigned resources are adequate. Please note that physical hardware generally performs better than virtual machines. When using a virtual machine, it is crucial to meet or exceed the minimum requirements for physical hardware. 

  • .NET 4.8 is required for all SiteAudit software.
  • Minimum display resolution of 1366 x 768 is recommended.

Note: Hosting Web reports requires IIS 10. SiteAudit supports both 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems and various SQL server versions. 

Hard Disk Space Requirements 

During upgrades, SQL database log files can significantly grow in size. Therefore, it is crucial to ensure sufficient disk space is available to perform these upgrades. The approximate space needed for the upgrade should be determined by considering the size of the database, which should be approximately twice the size of the database itself. 

To maintain the optimal performance of the SiteAudit database, it is strongly recommended to shrink the log file after each upgrade and periodically as part of regular database maintenance. For detailed instructions on shrinking the SiteAudit database log file, refer to the Shrink Database Log File article.
