System requirements

  • Operating System: Windows 7, 8, 8.1, Vista, XP, 2000, NT, ME, 98, 95. Macintosh OSX 10.4 or later. RedHat Linux v4, v5.
  • Processor Requirements: Minimum 486, or Pentium processor, or equivalent.
  • Memory Usage: RSIGuard typically uses between 10-20MB of RAM, however the footprint may be lower (due to use of virtual memory) on computers with less installed memory. Consumption of memory resources is similar to WordPad or other small Windows utilities. As a result, minimum machine memory requirements are dictated by the installed version of Windows and other larger applications that are running, and not RSIGuard.
  • CPU Usage: Typically below 1%. Windows Task Manager normally indicates 0% of the CPU is dedicated to RSIGuard except during breaks when video stretches are being displayed (at which point the computer is typically otherwise idle).
  • Disk storage: Installation of RSIGuard Stretch Edition/Call Center Edition v4.0 requires 25MB of disk space. Data stored by RSIGuard uses about 175KB per year per user (i.e., a negligible amount of space).
  • Network compatibility: RSIGuard is compatible with all standard networks (e.g., Windows, Novell) and can be operated over a terminal-based system (e.g., Citrix, Windows Terminal Services). Please see Server Installation (section 1.11b) for an additional discussion of server installations. Although RSIGuard can be used without network access, if one wishes to use the network features of RSIGuard (e.g., roaming profiles/data), users need only the ability to read and write from a network drive. RSIGuard requires no other network services
