Random Forests Systems Requirements

  • We suggest the following minimum and recommended, system requirements:

    • 80486 processor or higher.
    • 512MB of random-access memory (RAM). This value depends on the "size" you have purchased (64MB, 128MB, 256MB, 512MB, 1GIG). While all versions may run with a minimum of 32MB of RAM, we CANNOT GUARANTEE they will. We highly recommend that you follow the recommended memory configuration that applies to the particular version you have purchased. Using less than the recommended memory configuration results in hard drive paging, reducing performance significantly, or application instability.
    • Hard disk with 40 MB of free space for program files, data file access utility, and sample data files.
    • Additional hard disk space for scratch files (with the required space contingent on the size of the input data set).
    • CD-ROM or DVD drive.

    Recommended System Requirements

    Because Salford Tools are extremely CPU intensive, the faster your CPU, the faster they will run. For optimal performance, we strongly recommend they run on a machine with a system configuration equal to, or greater than, the following:

    • Pentium 4 processor running 2.0+ GHz.
    • 2 GIG of random-access memory (RAM). This value depends on the "size" you have purchased (64MB, 128MB, 256MB, 512MB, 1GIG). While all versions may run with a minimum of 32MB of RAM, we CANNOT GUARANTEE they will. We highly recommend that you follow the recommended memory configuration that applies to the particular version you have purchased. Using less than the recommended memory configuration results in hard drive paging, reducing performance significantly, or application instability.
    • Hard disk with 40 MB of free space for program files, data file access utility, and sample data files.
    • Additional hard disk space for scratch files (with the required space contingent on the size of the input data set).
    • CD-ROM or DVD drive.
    • 2 GIG of additional hard disk space available for virtual memory and temporary files.

    Ensuring Proper Permissions

    If you are installing on a machine that uses security permissions, please read the following note.

    • You must belong to the Administrator group on Windows 2008, Windows 7 / 8 to be able to properly install and license. Once the application is installed and licensed, any member with read/write/modify permissions to the applications /bin and temp directories can execute and run the application.
  • Supported Architectures

    • Alpha: DEC 3000 or AlphaServer running Tru64 UNIX 5.0 or higher
    • Linux/i386: i586 or higher processor; Linux 2.4 or higher kernel; glibc 2.3 or higher
    • Linux/AMD64: AMD64 or Intel EM64T processor; Linux 2.6 or higher kernel; glibc 2.3 or higher
    • Sun: UltraSPARC processor; Solaris 2.6 or higher
    • RS/6000: POWER or PowerPC processor; AIX 4.2 or higher
    • HP 9000: PA/RISC 1.1 or higher processor; HP/UX 11.x
    • SGI: MIPS 4 or higher processor; IRIX 6.5

    Minimum System Requirements

    • Minimum RAM requirement for all non-GUI app's is 32 MB of random-access memory (RAM). This value depends on the "size"
      you have purchased (64MB, 128MB, 256MB, 512MB, 1GIG).
    • Hard disk with 40 MB of free space for program files, data file access utility, and sample data files.
    • Additional hard disk space for scratch files (with the required space contingent on the size of the input data set).

    Recommended System Requirements

    • Recommended random-access memory (RAM) is 1.5 times the licensed data limit (32 MB, 64 MB, etc), up to the maximum permitted by the target architecture. On UNIX systems, it is generally recommended that there be at least twice as much swap space as there is RAM.
    • Hard disk with 40 MB of free space for program files, data file access utility, and sample data files.
    • Additional hard disk space for scratch files (with the required space contingent on the size of the input data set).

    All Salford apps are very CPU intensive, so more memory and a faster CPU are always helpful.

Licensing Application

The Salford Predictive Modeler uses a system of application system ID and associated unlock key. When installation is complete, the user will need to email the application "system ID." This system ID is clearly displayed in the License Information displayed the first time the application is started. You can alternatively get to this window by selecting the Help->License menu option.

Method 1: Fixed License
With a fixed license, each machine must have its own copy of the licensed program installed. If your license terms permit more than one copy, then the license must be activated on each machine that will be used.

Method 2: Floating License
This method of licensing your program is used if you intend the program application to be used by more than one user concurrently over a network. A floating license tracks the number of copies "checked out." When that number exceeds your license terms, a message is provided informing the user "all copies are checked out." The licensed program may be installed on a machine that each client machine can access. Machines that are not connected to the network must be issued a fixed license (Method 1 above).

A floating license is particularly useful when the number of potential users exceeds the number of seats specified in your license terms.
