Technical Specification and Requirements

Operational System and Accompanying Software

Wialon Local is provided as all-in-one solution which includes basic OS (Debian Linux) and components installed via ISO file. Some components, like hardware drivers and modules of Wialon Local itself, require network access during the installation process.

Provided OS is Debian Linux (Jessie), highly customized to meet the needs of Wialon Local. It is not recommended to use it for other software except for the products that are needed for Wialon Local to operate properly.

Apart from the OS, there are some software components (like inbound nginx and postfix servers) installed for proper functionality of your Wialon Local server (to have your DNS working and e-mails sent).

Wialon DB

Wialon Local has embedded data storage system Wialon DB, a proprietary DBMS with stable support for transactional processing and replication features. Physically it is located in storage folder of your Wialon Local. All kind of communications with the database are done either via provided web interfaces or various development tools.

Server Requirements

Consider these requirements to get the most from Wialon Local.

Minimum server requirements:

  1. CPU: Core i7
  2. RAM: 16 GB (Wialon only)
  3. HD: any RAID from 2TB

For a server with 4000 tracking units, we recommend:

  1. CPU: Xeon E31230 and higher
  2. RAM: from 64 GB (Wialon + Maps)
  3. HD: software-based RAID10, 8x2TB and more
  4. Internet channel width (from server): from 50 Mbit/s

For a server with 10000 tracking units, we recommend:

  1. CPU: two up-to-date Xeon CPUs
  2. RAM: from 128 GB
  3. HD: software-based RAID10, 8x2TB and more
  4. Internet channel width (from server): from 100 Mbit/s

Naturally, there is some level of approximation in these hardware requirements. Storage volume may vary a lot depending on how frequently and what amount of parameters units send. Operation of jobs and notifications, execution of reports, amount of units in online tracking, total number of system items created by users, hardware extension — the more of all these, the more cores of the CPU and total RAM you should use.
