Assuria Log Manager - System Requirements

The system requirements indicated below are for Assuria Log Manager version 4.2 or later. They are subject to change and the latest version of these requirements is available on the Assuria Online Customer Resource Centre web site at


A detailed sizing exercise may be required in order to correctly size the ALM implementation. Details such as typical event size, typical log size, log collection frequency, O/S and hardware versions, application version details and other information may be required. Assuria can provide sizing assistance and a sizing modelling spreadsheet is available on request.


Typical Installation Scenario

System Requirements

ALM components:
• ALM Console 
• ALM Core
• ALM Agents for Windows
• ALM Agents for Unix and Linux


Typical installation scenario

An ALM installation usually consists of one or more core systems that manage and report on multiple agents. An installation can be as small as a single ALM agent installed on a single computer along with the core ALM components, or it can consist of multiple core systems managing agents, and other tools across several systems.


System Requirements (ALM Core)

The system requirements for installing the ALM Core on a computer if you are evaluating the software or are conducting small-to-medium installations are:

Requirement:                               Sizing Recommendation:
Processor                                     1 GHz Intel Pentium III or greater
Operating system                          Windows Server 2003 R2
Windows 7 (server version)
Windows Server 2008
Windows Server 2008 R2
Windows Server 2012
Windows Server 2012 R2

Memory                                         512MB or greater
Hard disk space                             Software installed 200MB
Database                                       SQL Server 2005 (Express for small volumes), SQL Server 2008 or 2008 R2
3rd party s/w (not incl.)                SQL Server Native Client (if ALM Core on separate system)
Other ALM components                  The ALM console is installed with the ALM Core

System Requirements (ALM Store and Database)


The ALM Store and Database are central to an ALM Installation. We recommend that a Storage Area Network (SAN) is used.


Requirement:                                Recommendation:
Log Store                                       SAN (recommended), NAS or local disk
File system                                    NTFS
Disk space                                     Min 40GB for evaluation. (For production use, Assuria can provide detailed sizing estimates, based on the size of the estate and specific operational requirements.)

Memory                                         64MB minimum 
Disc space used                              Install 16 MB + min. 30MB additional disk space for Spool

System Requirements (ALM Agent for Unix and Linux)


The following table describes the system requirements for installing the ALM Agent for Unix and Linux:
