System Requirements

TotalView Requirements

The PathSolutions deployment will usually reside in a shared-server or virtual-server environment.  If you want to install a dedicated server for the application, server guidelines are listed in the following table.

PathSolutions TotalView Service installs on a Windows server (or workstation acting as a server) and can be viewed from web browsers on the network.  The following requirements are for the server and client web browser.

Server Requirements. The system requirements may be low, depending on the size of your network.  Keep in mind that as your network grows, you may need to increase the base system requirements. If you enable NetFlow collection your diskspace requirements will go up by 10-20%

Virtual Server Requirements. Running the solution on a virtual server is fully supported for deployments below 100,000 interfaces.  The server should be configured with a fixed (static) MAC address for licensing purposes.
