3.6. Hardware Configurations Supporting HSpot

3.6.1. Sun Workstations: Sun Ultra 5 with 256 MB RAM

If you are not using the visualization features in HSpot, then it may run acceptably on an Ultra 1 with 256 MB of RAM. HSpot will not run acceptably on Sparc 1, 2, 5, 10, or 20 workstations.

3.6.2. Windows PC (XP): 512MB RAM

We have used HSpot extensively on a 32-bit Windows XP machine with 512MB RAM with good results.

3.6.3. Windows PC (Vista): 1GB RAM

We have done some testing on machines running 32-bit Java. However this has been less extensive than on Windows XP.

3.6.4. Linux PC: 256 MB RAM

We have done limited testing on Linux systems running with a Pentium 2 processor at 266 MHz and 256 MB of RAM, as well as with a Pentium 3 processor and 256 MB of RAM.

3.6.5. Mac PC: Intel Core 2 Duo processor

Due to the migration to JAVA 1.6 and the limited support of this platform by Apple, HSpot runs only on MAC computers with Intel Core 2 Duo processor and MAC OSX 10.5.1 and later.
