System requirements


silly and very basic question. 

I am kind of confuse about the system requirements for NCM. We started using NCM for 6 months now and at each update of the product the wizard keeps asking for more RAM. 

So back to the documentation.

 1 - Do I need to add the system requirements of SolarWinds and NCM? 6 + 16 = 22 GiB

But the way for me it should be 6GiB -> ISO norm.

NCM Server Hardware

CPU Speed

3 GHz dual core dual processor


6 GB

Hard Drive Space

30 GB


CPU: 4 Cores / 8 Cores

RAM: 16 GB / 32 GB

Or should I understand I only need 6 GiB? 

As I said a very basic question.
