Test environment .NET system requirements

Overview

Automation Server is used to execute your Bizagi processes on runtime environments such as a production or a test environment.

Keep in mind that, if you are going to perform stress tests, unless you are using staging or a pre-production environment, it is recommended to set a test environment which has similar characteristics to your designated production environment.

 

Minimum requirements for the production environment are described at the following links, according to the system architecture of your choice.

High availability .NET setup.

Standard .NET setup.

 

Simplified test environment

Minimum requirements for a simplified test environment, is represented by the image below:

Requirements

The following requirements are narrowed down by database server, Bizagi server, and other infrastructure assets.

 

Database server

For a test environment, a single server is involved considering the following requirements:

Bizagi server

For a test environment, a single server is involved considering the following requirements:

 

REQUIREMENTS FOR THE BIZAGI SERVER

HARDWARE

RAM

8 GB minimum.

Hard Disk

40 GB minimum.

Processor

64-bit.

2 cores minimum.

2.4GHz or higher-

SOFTWARE

Operating System

Additional Components

Automation Server, which also installs Microsoft's .NET Framework version 4.6.1 (and this one includes in turn, other components such as Visual C++ 2010, 2008 Redistributable).

Oracle Data Provider for .NET component (applies to projects that connect to an Oracle database).

 

User-acceptance testers

Bizagi Work portal is a web-based application and therefore, testers (and end users) only need a browser or Bizagi's app installed for mobile devices.

Bizagi presents several optimization measures featured by its own product architecture, focused on mobile devices support, so that the best user experience is provided without the need of demanding requirements (for instance, Bizagi has been tested with 3G and 4G internet).

Even though Bizagi does not demand a high speed in the network for end user connectivity, consider that there are factors which are beyond Bizagi's control, and which may affect overall end user experience.

End users on mobile devices would be communicating over the internet (its communication will inherently depend upon factors such as: A higher latency in data transmission, fluctuations, interference and congestion affecting the speed of the channel, or the quality of the networks used during transmission, among others).

 

REQUIREMENTS FOR TESTERS

DESKTOP (PC) OR LAPTOPS

Screen resolution

1024 x 768 or higher.

Important

Consider the following notes:

 

1. Operating systems installed in Turkish language are not supported.

All involved servers will need to be set with regional settings different to those for Turkish language and culture (tr, tr-TR).

 

2. Consider recommended guidelines when installing and configuring Bizagi.

These guidelines include a sizing estimation for best performance, as well as relevant infrastructure aspects in the overall system architecture.

For instance, there are recommendations regarding the network or when setting up the above servers in virtual machines.

For more information about these recommendations, refer to the Optimizing performance chapter.
