Auvik system requirements


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, or as a lightweight Windows service.

Supported browsers and operating systems

  • Browser - Microsoft Edge, Chrome, Firefox, or Safari
  • Operating system - Windows 7 or higher, Mac OS X
  • 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.

NOTE: Although the Auvik application may continue to function with earlier versions of the browsers listed above, no further fixes specific to interaction with Auvik for these versions will be provided.

RECOMMENDATION: We’ve uncovered a few limitations isolated to Microsoft Edge Legacy, which make your Auvik dashboard experience less than desirable. As a result, we highly recommend using the Chromium version of Microsoft Edge, or a Chrome, Firefox, or Safari browser instead.
