Hardware Requirements

Please find below our recommendations based on the number of monitored servers:

Monitored servers CPU Memory (RAM)
1-2 2 8
3-4 4 16
5+ 8 32


Installing ServerGenius on an SSD type disk drive is recommended for better performance.

Also, you may need to allocate additional disk space for ServerGenius Server, depending on the number of servers and websites monitored, and coincidelly the amount of data collected and stored in the PostgreSQL database.

Finally, please note that it is generally a good idea to run a monitoring application such as ServerGenius on a dedicated server. This prevents other applications to reduce available resources.

Operating System

ServerGenius is compatible with the following OS:

  • Windows 7 Service Pack 1
  • Windows 8/8.1
  • Windows 10 Pro
  • Windows 11 Pro
  • Windows Server 2008 SP2/Small Business Server SP2 or 2008 R2 SP1
  • Windows Server 2012 or 2012 R2
  • Windows Server 2016
  • Windows Server 2019
  • Windows Server 2022

Both 32 and 64 bits architectures are supported.

Network

Only one network port is required, and will be asked during the setup. By default, we suggest to use port 7777, which is not an officially registered port and therefore not assigned to specific services.

If you want to access your ServerGenius web interface from outside your company's network, you will need either a public IP address or a domain name / subdomain to access the server.

If you cannot connect to ServerGenius web interface on your server, please contact your Administrator first, as this is most probably a network or firewall issue, not a ServerGenius issue.
