System Requirements

Virtual Machines and InterMapper License Keys

  1. In order to use a license key, three variables must remain static:
  • Hostname 
  • IP address 
  • MAC address

Note: The variables can be set when creating a new virtual machine.

  1. A change in hardware attributes (CPU, storage, or memory) within the same system does not affect the way the InterMapper server or InterMapper RemoteAccess™ operates. A move to new system hardware requires a new license key.
  2. A change in the Network Interface Card (NIC) requires a new license key; the MAC address is unique, and is tied to a network interface (physical, virtual, or wireless).

 

Software Requirements
InterMapper, InterMapper RemoteAccess, and InterMapper Flows

Operating System Supported Configurations
Windows
  • Windows 7/8/10
  • Windows Server 2012/2008
  • IPv6 support requires Windows 7, Server 2008, or newer
  • Windows 10 support is 64-bit only
Mac OS
  • Mac OS X 10.9/10.10/10.11
Linux
  • Red Hat 5/6/7
  • Ubuntu 12.04/14.04
  • Debian 6/7
  • SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 11/12
Notes
  • If you install InterMapper on a headless server, you need to use a remote desktop access program that supports remote sounds or a copy of InterMapper RemoteAccess.
  • Running InterMapper on a Mac OS virtual machine is not supported.

 

Minimum Hardware Requirements

InterMapper Application Server

Minimum Recommended Hardware
Processors
  •  Two (2) Virtual CPUs dedicated and reserved for App server 
Memory (RAM)
  • 8 GB allocated exclusively to the Application Server on Mac and Linux
  • 16 GB allocated exclusively to the Application Server on Windows
Disk Configuration
  • OS Drive Array – 100 GB 10k SAS of pre-allocated disk space
  • Data Drive Array – 350 GB 10k SAS of pre-allocated disk space
Notes
  • This recommendation supports up to 500 devices. As your device counts increase, so do storage requirements.

 

InterMapper Flows

Minimum Recommended Hardware
Virtual Machines
  • Four (4) Virtual CPUs dedicated and reserved for InterMapper Flows
  • 8 GB (RAM) allocated exclusively to the InterMapper Flows for Mac and Linux
  • 16 GB (RAM) allocated exclusively to the InterMapper Flows for Windows
Dedicated Hardware

Minimum requirements

  • Two (2) or more of the latest generation Intel or AMD processors with at least four (4) processor cores each.
  • Recommend processing speed us 2.5Ghz or higher

Disk Configuration 

  • OS Drive Array – 100 GB 10k SAS
  • Data Drive Array – 350 GB 10k SAS 

Up to 10 million flows/hour

  • Quad Core, 16 GB of RAM
  • Requires 64-bit Windows, Linux, or Macintosh hardware

100 million flows/hour

  • Quad Core, 3GHz, 65 GB of RAM, RAID storage
  • Requires 64-bit Windows, Linux, UNIX, or Macintosh hardware
Notes
  • InterMapper Flows requires a fairly powerful computer; both processor power and the amount of RAM are important considerations. The minimum recommended specifications support up to 10 million flows per hour.
  • InterMapper Flows benefits from having a large amount of RAM for its database cache. Use a 64-bit Windows, Macintosh, or Linux system if you wish to allocate more than 1.5 GBytes of RAM for the cache.

 

InterMapper RemoteAccess

Minimum Recommended Hardware
Processor
  • In general, any computer capable of running supported Mac versions, a 1 GHz Pentium or faster Windows machine, or a Linux computer with 512 MBytes of RAM supports InterMapper RemoteAccess.
Notes InterMapper RemoteAccess installs the supported Java runtime version.
