System Requirements

EventReporter requires very limited resources of the machine to run optimally. The actual minimum requirements to run the application depend on the type of installation. If only the client is installed, they are a bit higher otherwise the service needs a few enabling it to run on a large variety of machines – even the highly utilized ones.


  • The client can be installed on Windows 2003 and above. This includes Windows XP, Windows 2008/2012/2016/2019 servers, Windows Vista and Windows 7/8/10. The operating system variant (Workstation, Server …) is irrelevant.
  • The client is suited for 32bit and 64bit operating systems. It runs automatically on each platform in 32Bit or 64Bit mode.
  • The client uses Microsoft .Net Framework technology. The Installer will automatically install the necessary .Net Framework components before installation. A network connection maybe required in order to download additional components.
  • The client requires roughly 8 MB RAM in addition to the operating system minimum requirements. It also needs around 5 MB of disk space.


  • The service has fewer requirements.
  • It works under the same operating system versions.
  • At runtime, the base service requires 5 MB of main memory and less than 5 MB of disk space. However, the actual resources used by the agent largely depend on the services configured.
  • Please note that the 32Bit Service is limited to 2GB of usable memory. The 64Bit version does not have any limit. A typical Syslog message (including overhead) takes roughly 4-8 KB. With 1024 MB, you can buffer up to 100,000-200,000 messages in 1024 MB.
  • Under Windows 2003*, the 3 additional event logs (“DNS Server”, “File Replication Service”, and “Directory Service”) are automatically supported.
