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.

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.
