    Hardware Requirements

    Table 2 lists the minimum hardware requirements for a PSM client managing a simple network. The actual hardware required is dependent on the size of the managed network. Contact Juniper Networks Support to determine whether your PSM client hardware is suitable for your network installation.

    RAM

    4GB single channel DDR3 1600MHz

    Hard disk space

    73 GB

    Video card

    512MB Dedicated graphics card

    Network Interface Card

    1 x 1GbE

    Media Installation

    DVD +/- RW Drive

    Terminal Server Incremental Memory Requirements

    When running the proNX Service Manager client application in a terminal server deployment, the memory required on the Windows or Linux server is proportional to the number of clients served. Each client requires 2 GB of RAM. This is in addition to the base memory requirements for the server.

    For example, assuming the base memory requirements for a Windows server is 4 GB, the following memory is required to support 10 proNX Service Manager clients:

    Total memory required = base_memory + (#_of_clients x 2 GB)
                          = 4 GB + 10 x 2 GB
                          = 24 GB

    Note: These calculations do not apply to the proNX Service Manager Dashboard client. The proNX Service Manager Dashboard client runs in a web browser whose memory requirements are accounted for in the operating system.
