Minimum System Requirements for SirsiDynix Symphony Staff Workstations

WYLD is currently on SirsiDynix Symphony version
These requirements are for machines which will only be running Symphony WorkFlows. If you plan to use additional software on them, you should plan for additional speed and memory accordingly.

* As of April 8th, 2014, Windows XP is no longer supported by Microsoft. SirsiDynix no longer has Windows XP workstations to test or support issues. Workflows will continue to work on XP, but libraries should consider upgrading any existing XP machines.

Release OS/Platform Processor RAM Disk Space for Client Monitor Resolution Notes
Symphony 3.4 Windows XP or Mac OS X (10.5 SP2 or higher on Intel (3)) Minimum: 700 MHz Suggested: 1Ghz
32-bit only for Windows( local testing shows 64 bit Windows 7 will also work)
64-bit only for MAC
Minimum: 1GB
Suggested: 2GB
100MB 1024 x 768 or better A widescreen monitor of 20" or greater is recommended for optimal use of the Workflows Client.
If using a smaller monitor, using Workflows with the 'classic theme' is recommended.
Windows Vista, Windows 7 Minimum: 800 MHz
Suggested: 1Ghz
32-bit only for Windows (local testing shows 64 bit Windows 7 will also work)
Minimum: 1GB
Suggested: 2GB
100MB 1024 x 768 or better

Note 1: SirsiDynix recommends setting the virtual memory association to equal twice the amount of physical memory, at minimum. Please work with your PC administrator to check the virtual memory setting on each workstation running the Symphony Workflows Client, and increase the memory if necessary.

Note 2: On workstations running the WorkFlows client that will simultaneously run additional applications other than a browser, SirsiDynix strongly suggests that the workstation be configured with at least 1 GB of RAM. Regardless of actual workstation memory configuration, please ensure that the WorkFlows Client will consistently have 512 mbytes of available memory on the workstation.

Note 4: Macintosh users should run OS X.

Note 5: Workflows staff client will not affect OPAC stations, which will continue to require a browser only. Firefox users should be using version 4 or later.
