System Requirements

Installation requires one machine be provisioned unless you are also setting up Test Modeller in which case you will need two machines.

  1. A Windows based machine for hosting the VIP server (test generation, automation activities, data provisioning).
  2. A Linux based machine for hosting Docker with the Test Modeller Databases, API, and Web front end. [This is only required if you are setting up Test Modeller]

System requirements: Windows

• Windows Server 2013 Enterprise / 10 Pro minimum – 64-bit edition
• 64bit Processor (i3 minimum – Intel Core i7 recommended)
• Microsoft .Net 4.8 Framework
• Minimum 8GB Ram (16GB Recommended)
• Minimum 20GB Hard Drive space
• Port 8080 outbound communication.

Additional ports may be required if utilising additional VIP servers. These should be placed on ports (8081 – 8085). Port 443 is also used if connecting to any SSL based services (e.g. Slack).

System requirements: Linux [only required if you are setting up Test Modeller]

• 64-bit edition of Linux OS which conforms to Docker software requirements
• 64bit Processor (i3 minimum – Intel Core i7 recommended)
• Minimum 8GB Ram (16GB Recommended)
• Minimum 20GB Hard Drive space
• Port 80 and port 8080 open for inbound and outbound communication. 443 if securing the services with SSL.

Note: If hosting databases separately the respected database ports will also need to be open (7474. 5432).
It is recommended the server is profiled to monitor the performance as capacity increases.
