Platform Requirements

This article contains guidelines for the minimum platform requirements for Netaphor SiteAuditâ„¢ components.

You should review this checklist before and after deploying SiteAudit.

Platform Requirements Guidelines

The following platform requirements are guidelines and considered to be the minimum that should be used based on the number of printers being monitored. These requirements are sufficient for most environments. But depending on usage, it may be necessary to increase the amount of RAM or hard drive space available.

Netaphor support can help to evaluate performance to determine if the assigned resources are adequate. Physical hardware performs better than virtual machines. It is imperative to meet or exceed the minimum requirements for physical hardware when using a virtual machine.

.NET 4.5.1 or later is required for all SiteAudit software

Note: Hosting Web reports requires IIS 7 or later. SiteAudit supports both 32- and 64-bit operating systems and SQL server versions.

Hard Disk Space Requirements

SQL database log files can grow significantly, especially during an upgrade. One must be sure enough disk space exists to perform upgrades. The approximate space needed to perform the upgrade should be determined by the size of the database. It should be approximately twice the size of the database. 

It is strongly recommended that the log file be shrunk after an upgrade and periodically thereafter as part of regular database maintenance. For more information about shrinking the SiteAudit database log file, refer to the Shrink Database Log File article
