What is a Minimum Server Spec?
The Nx Server application can be installed on just about any computing device out there.
That being said Nx Witness - and all software - is only as stable as the hardware it sits upon.
Although the Nx Witness Server application is extremely lightweight application that uses a minimum amount of hardware resources* we do recommend using the following configurations as a minimum spec based on the number of streams in a System.
A few things to remember:
- The speed and stability of the Server application depends on the hardware it is installed upon.
- Monitoring CPU usage provides a good indicator of the system's potential usability and stability. Keeping your average CPU and System Drive load below 50% will ensure solid system stability and performance, and increase the life of your hardware.
- The Server application can record a maximum of 128 IP cameras.
- It's always a good idea to test new, unfamiliar hardware before using.
