If you will install NI SystemLink Test Module, you need to use NI SystemLink Server Configuration tool to configure the NoSqlDatabase cache size to 1 GB for every 5 million steps you expect to store. The cache size specifies the upper limit for how much RAM the NoSqlDatabase will consume.

After you determine the size your SystemLink server, install SystemLink Server on the host.
