Important Notes

Note: as of version 5.3, Statseeker requires CPUs which support the SSE4.2 instruction set.
  • Physical server hardware requirements depend on the size of the network being monitored and the type and volume of data being collected, stored and processed
  • Statseeker recommends the use of a single large disk or disks configured as RAID 0, RAID 1 or RAID 10
  • Please contact our Customer Satisfaction Team at customerservice@statseeker.com for any bespoke Netflow or Syslog requirements as this does affect the server memory/disk configuration when deploying such a solution
  • Virtual machine hardware recommendations are designed for deployment on VMware, specific requirements may vary depending on your virtualization platform and environment. In addition:
    • The RAM and CPU must be dedicated, not shared resources
    • The HDD should be thick-provisioned that is, pre-allocate the required disk-space. The dynamic allocation provided via thin-provisioning will produce performance issues with most Statseeker installations.

* Note:

  • Ensure that your CPU supports the SSE4.2 instruction set
  • Small/medium sized networks, where a large number of devices are sending syslog and/or netflow traffic to Statseeker, will require additional resources
  • Additional storage space will need to be allocated for retention of Statseeker backups (backups should not be stored on the Statseeker server)


Browser Version - Support for Statseeker Web Interface

Statseeker offers a web UI as the primary method for interacting with Statseeker and the data that Statseeker collects. We support the latest stable (non-BETA) versions of:

  • Edge
