Recommended Minimum Client Hardware Configuration

Note the following minimum recommendations for configuring your desktop client.

Processor

Oracle Applications performance is sensitive to the CPU speed. Oracle recommends using a client with at least 350 MHz processors. You will experience significant performance improvement with faster (1.4+ GHz) processors. Note that the minimum requirements will provide minimal performance. Your requirements may be higher than the minimum specification.

Memory

When determining the optimum CPU speed and amount of memory, consider the minimum requirements for the operating system. Oracle recommends at least 256 MB of RAM for Microsoft Windows clients. If you are a Windows 2000 or Windows XP user and are running Oracle Applications concurrently with other desktop applications, you will experience better performance with additional memory. Oracle also recommends at least 256 MB of RAM for Apple MAC OS X V10.4 clients.

When considering the CPU speed and amount of memory, consider the minimum requirements for your operating system, other software that runs concurrently, and external factors such as the network characteristics. Check that the configuration is sufficient to achieve the throughput necessary to sustain your business model. Your requirements may be higher than the minimum specification.
