ServerGenius On-line User Guide

           

Pre-requisites

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
  • Windows 8
  • Windows 10
  • Windows Server 2008 / 2008 R2
  • Windows Server 2012 / 2012 R2
  • Windows Server 2016
  • Windows Server 2019

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.
