Omnipeek supports most rack mount, desktop and portable computers as long as the basic system requirements to run the supported operating systems are met. Depending on traffic and the particular usage of Omnipeek, the requirements may be substantially higher.
The following system is recommended for Omnipeek:
Intel Core i3 or higher processor
40 GB available hard disk space
Factors that contribute towards superior performance include high speed CPU, number of CPUs, amount of RAM, high performance disk storage subsystem (RAID 0), and as much additional hard disk space as is required to save the trace files that you plan to manage.
Supported operating systems require users to have Administrator level privileges in order to load and unload device drivers, or to select a network adapter for the program’s use in capturing packets.
