Note that DeMeter BI will stop importing data when remaining disk space goes below 10% of initial disk space.
Please also note that DeMeter DB will stop sending data to DeMeter BI when remaining disk space goes below 15% of initial disk space.

Note: DeMeter Configurator will notify you remaining disk space reaches a set threshold.

(*): These recommendations are given as starting point. Key factors to be considered whenever working with DeMeter are related to:
- Overall number of connectors.
- Connector type in- use.
- The TAKT time.
- …

It should be considered good practice to monitor over a month the system to ensure system performances are sufficient. This is especially true for virtual machines whose characteristics can easily be upgraded.

Please contact the support team should you require any help in monitoring the system performances
: Two cores are allocated to RavenDB for database handling – 2 cores are dedicated to data retrieval and catalogue. Other cores are necessary to handle data connection to the various connectors setup in your installation. The total number of Cores will also depend on the number of Assets connected to the server (please refer to Desoutter Industrial Tools : Installing DeMeter ( article for further details.
: RAM memory is fundamental since live information is going to be displayed directly from said memory before writing to the RavenDB.

(****): it is advised to use one port for data recovery, and another one for configuring / consulting DeMeter.
(*****): Ensure that your factory’s network backbone also operates at 1Gb/s (minimum).
