System Requirements

Mentioned below are the minimum requirements to run AssetExplorer. You may require more RAM space and high-end processors depending upon the support load, simultaneous access load, and other applications' load installed on the same server.

No of Nodes Hard Disk Type RAM Processor OS
250-2000 500GB SDD 8GB

1.7GHz to 2.4GHz
10MB to 12MB Cache
4 cores to 8 cores
or Any entry-level server grade processor

E.g
Intel Xeon Scalable -Bronze/Silver
Intel XeonE Family












Windows Server OS (2012-2016)

Linux

RHEL 8 or above

Ubuntu 14.0 or above
2000-10000 1TB - SDD 8GB/16GB*

2.4GHz to 3.0GHz

12MB to 20MB Cache
6 cores to 8 cores
or equivalent technology
E.g
Intel Xeon E Family

Above 10000 2TB/3TB* - SDD 8GB/16GB* 3.0GHz to 4.5GHz
12MB to 30 MB Cache
10 cores to 20 cores
or equivalent technology
E.g
Intel Xeon Scalable Gold/Platinum

* - PostgreSQL bundled is configured as a database.
 

Supported Browsers

  • Internet Explorer: IE 11, IE Edge
  • Firefox
  • Google Chrome

MSSQL

If your AssetExplorer runs on an MSSQL setup, then make sure to host the database server in a separate machine under the same network as the application server. The DB server machine configuration solely depends on no of databases configured and usage. Please consult with your DBA or Microsoft MSSQL support for system requirements.

Supported MSSQL Versions: 2008, 2010, 2012, 2014, 2016, and 2017.

PostgreSQL

Since PostgreSQL 9.2 requires users to modify kernel resources to allot required resources for Postgres server,
i. Add the the below mentioned entry in /etc/sysctl.conf
kernel.shmmax=536870912
kernel.shmall=131072
ii. Execute sudo sysctl -p /etc/sysctl.conf to reload the configured change.

Note: This is only applicable for Linux OS installations that use bundled Postgres.

How to enable read committed snapshot isolation (RCSI)


All MSSQL databases usually have lock issues, which may affect an application’s optimal performance. To avoid such performance issues in AssetExplorer, enable the read committed snapshot isolation (RCSI) by following these steps:

This might take a while to complete and also requires downtime, so please schedule it over a weekend.
 

  • Stop AssetExplorer application.
  • Log in to SQL Management studio.
  • Take the AssetExplorer database offline by executing

    USE master GO ALTER DATABASE <db_name> SET OFFLINE WITH ROLLBACK IMMEDIATE GO

  • Enable the read committed snapshot by running

    ALTER DATABASE <db_name> SET READ_COMMITTED_SNAPSHOT ON WITH ROLLBACK IMMEDIATE GO
     
  • Bring the database online using

    USE master GO ALTER DATABASE <db_name> SET ONLINE GO
     
  • Check if you have enabled RCSI successfully by running the following query
    SELECT is_read_committed_snapshot_on FROM sys.databases WHERE [name] = '<db_name>'


If the output to this query is 1, you've successfully enabled RCSI.
You can now start the application. For more information on MSSQL databases and RSCI, go here.
