Auvik system requirements

Follow

Auvik is a software-as-a-service (SaaS) application. Most of Auvik runs in the cloud, but to access and communicate with your environment, we use a collector that runs on your client’s network. The collector is available through an OVA installation, bash installation, Docker or as a lightweight Windows service.

Supported browsers

  • Most major browsers running Chromium base along with Opera, Firefox and Safari.
  • Minimum screen resolution of 1280 x 720 will provide the best viewing experience.

For all browsers, make sure Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.2 is enabled. Most browsers have it enabled by default. As browsers constantly update Auvik recommends keeping your browser up to date with the latest in security and hotfixes.

Auvik collector requirements

Supported OS platforms:

Ubuntu 22.04 Server

Note: To continue to use an Ubuntu Server as an Auvik Collector, customers will need a minimum version of Ubuntu 20.04. As of July 29, 2023, Ubuntu 18.04 and earlier are EOL/EOS and cannot be used to host the Auvik collector.

For new installations of an Auvik Collector, we recommend Ubuntu 22.04.

Raspberry PI OS

The bash script installation path can be used to install the collector on a dedicated Raspberry Pi device running Raspberry Pi OS based off of Debian 12 (bookworm) at minimum.

OVA and Bash Script Collector

The system should be able to dedicate 1 CPU threads, 2GB of RAM, and 24GB of available disk space. Larger installations will require greater dedicated resources, with a minimum of 4 CPU threads, 8GB of RAM, and 24GB of free space.

  • OVA/scripted
    Installation instructions for setting up the Auvik collector using an OVA can be found here.

Windows

The Windows service can be installed on any Microsoft Windows desktop running a 64-bit version of Windows 10 Version 22H2 or higher or any server running a 64-bit version of Windows Server 2016 or higher. For more information on OS End of Service and the Auvik Collector, click here.

The system should dedicate one CPU, 2GB of RAM, and 8GB of available disk space. The host Windows machine should have at least 4 CPUs, 4GB of RAM, and 16 GB. Larger installations will require greater dedicated resources, with a minimum of 4 CPU threads, 8GB of memory, and 8GB of free space. Therefore, the host machine should also be sized accordingly to handle this requirement.

  • Windows service
    Installation instructions for setting up the Auvik collector using a Windows Service can be found here.
    Note: Please note resource sizing as outlined in the link.

Docker Installation

  • Docker image
    Installation instructions for setting up the Auvik collector using a Docker image can be found here.
