Client: Hardware

To use web interface of SmartHCM any modern office system would work. Since SmartHCM is a web application it can be used on any device that is capable of running current web browser (see browser´s system requirements for a bare minimum). As with most web based applications, a faster CPU and more RAM makes the GUI snappier and more pleasant to use. Larger displays also make users more productive using wide grids, forms and multiple tabs. To give an example: a computer with an i3 processor with 4GB RAM and display with a 1680x1050 resolution is a comfortable setup for the SmartHCM web client.

Client: Web Brwoser

It is recommended to use latest version of Firefox to ensure a better user experience as SmartHCM does benefit greatly from the improved performance in those versions.

Client: Web Brwoser

Here there are example configurations, depending on the number of concurrent users to be supported. These assume the server is hosted with a fast connection so it's network is not a limiting factor.

Downstream bandwidth Concurrent users
3Mbit/s <=10
10MBit/s <=20
100MBit/s <=100

As every usage scenario is different and there's no standard the real bandwidth usage in practice may differ from those given above.

Server: EXT .NET / ASP .NET

Server: Software Stack

Server: Hardware Sizing

Please follow Hardware Sizing article for the hardware recommendations based on the number of concurrent users to be supported.


In the case of a virtualized solution (VMware, VirtualBox, Xen, etc), the Host system on which the virtual machine is running should have at least 8 GB of RAM for 32 bits instances and 16 GB for 64 bits, to ensure that in addition to the virtual machine the host system is not continuously swapping to ensure a smooth operation.
