EventLog Analyzer system requirements
This section lists the system requirements for installing and working with EventLog Analyzer (Distributed and Standalone editions).
± 2000 syslogs / 300 winlogs
± 10000 syslogs / 1500 winlogs
± 20000 syslogs / 3000 winlogs
|Network card capacity
- Disk throughput refers to the MB/s (megabytes per second) that EventLog Analyzer requires to write on the disk, without negatively impacting performance.
- The above mentioned values are approximate.
EventLog Analyzer can be installed on the following operating systems and versions:
- Windows 2000/Vista/XP/NT/7/8/10, and Windows Server 2000/2003/2008/2008 R2/2012/2016/2019
- Linux: Red Hat 8.0/8.2/9.0/RHEL, Mandrake/Mandriva, SUSE, Fedora, CentOS, Ubuntu, Debian
- Allocate 100 percent RAM/CPU to the virtual machine running EventLog Analyzer. Sharing memory/CPU with other virtual machines on the same host may result in RAM/CPU starvation and may negatively impact EventLog Analyzer's performance.
- Employ thick provisioning, as thin provisioning increases I/O latency.
- Enabling VM snapshots is not recommended as the host duplicates data in multiple blocks by increasing reads and writes, resulting in increased IO latency and degraded performance.
EventLog Analyzer has been tested to support the following browsers and versions with at least a 1024x768 display resolution:
- Internet Explorer 9 and later
- Firefox 4 and later
- Chrome 8 and later
EventLog Analyzer can use the following databases as its back-end database.
Bundled with the product
- Microsoft SQL 2000
- Microsoft SQL 2005
- Microsoft SQL 2008
- Microsoft SQL 2012
- Microsoft SQL 2014
- Microsoft SQL 2017
Network-attached storage (NAS)
- NAS drives are not recommended if their latency is higher than the local disk’s latency.
- Check the disk's I/O latency before implementation, as disk quality is critical for EventLog Analyzer's performance.
