Sizing a SystemLink Server

Last Modified: September 17, 2021

Determine the size your SystemLink server needs to be for optimal performance.

Before you size your server, consider connecting to a Mongo database or file share on a separate server. Doing this can enhance performance and reliability.
Refer to the following table to properly size your SystemLink server.
Components Windows, less than 50 nodes Windows, 50+ nodes, SystemLink TDM
Processor 4-core recommended or higher 8-core recommended or higher
  • 16 GB minimum
  • 32+ GB recommended
  • 32 GB minimum
  • 64+ GB recommended

Total required disk size depends on the amount of data you ingest or packages you host.

  • 6 GB minimum
  • 8+ GB recommended
16+ GB recommended

If you plan to install NI SystemLink Test Module, you need to use the 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 have determined the size of your SystemLink server, install SystemLink Server on the host.
