LA 2.1 System Requirements
The following are the system requirements for Log Analyzer (LA) 2.1. This version of LA uses Orion Platform version 2019.2. For more information on Orion Platform system requirements, see the Orion Platform requirements.
In addition to the requirements below, most LA monitoring requires the monitored server be polled by an Orion Agent for Windows.
End-of-support notice: Orion Platform 2018.4 and 2019.2 products are no longer compatible with Windows Server 2012 and 2012 R2. To use the new features introduced in Orion Platform 2019.2, upgrade your environment at your earliest convenience.
|Operating System language||
Physical server or virtual machine
|Authentication||Either mixed-mode or Windows authentication. If you require SQL authentication, you must enable mixed mode on your SQL server.|
Do not install Orion Platform products on the same server as SolarWinds Access Rights Manager (ARM).
Quad core processor or better
Do not enable Physical Address Extension (PAE).
|Hard drive space||
15 GB minimum 40 GB recommended
Two 146 GB 15K (RAID 1/Mirrored Settings) hard drives are recommended with a dedicated drive for the server operating system and SolarWinds installation.
During upgrades, the installer needs 2 GB of free space.
Some common files may need to be installed on the same drive as your server operating system. You may want to move or expand the Windows temporary directories.
LA agent requirements
Agent software is free. Licensing occurs through your product and is usually based on the number of monitored elements.
Before you deploy agents to a target computer, review the following system requirements.
Only 64-bit operating systems are supported.
Only Pro, Enterprise, and Ultimate workstation
|Hard drive space||Approximately 100 MB of hard drive space on the target computer.|
The following software packages are installed by the agent installer if necessary:
The VeriSign Root Certificate Authority (CA) must be current. This is required because the agent software is signed using a VeriSign certificate.
After the agent is installed, it runs as a Local System account and does not require administrative permissions to function.
Agents can tolerate up to 500 ms of latency between the remote computer and the Orion server.
The cloud instance requirements match the requirements for the LA database server above.
Azure Storage Disk volumes are not your dedicated hardware. Consider using Azure Reserved Instances of storage disk volumes for SQL servers.
