HOBOware 3.7.10 has some basic common System Requirements that are presented in the list below. If using HOBOware as the data collection server for a network of Indoor Wireless HOBO data nodes you may want to consider the configuration guidelines provided in the table. There are more detailed configuration recommendations available on the Onset Web site at http://www.onsetcomp.com/tech-note/hoboware-performance.

  • Windows: Windows 8 and 8.1 (Core, Pro), Windows 7 (Pro, Ultimate and Home Premium), Windows 10 (Home, Pro).

  • Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.7.0_17 and above (32-bit or 64-bit on Windows). Please note that version 1.6, also known as Java 6, is no longer supported. See the time zone note below.
  • One of the following Internet browsers: Safari 7 and 8, Microsoft Internet Explorer 10 and 11, as well as the most recent versions of Firefox and Google Chrome.
  • Minimum screen resolution of 1024x768. Recommended screen resolution of 1280x800 or greater particularly for non-English users.

  • Processor Speed, Memory and Disk Space
  High End Mid Range Low End Lowest End
CPU 2.9 GHz 2.0 GHz 1.8 GHz 1.8 GHz
  dual core dual core single core single core
RAM 3 GB 2 GB 1.5 GB 1 GB
Disk Space 256 MB+ (see note) 256 MB+ (see note) 256 MB+ (see note) 300 MB
User Model 4 3 2 1

The User Model row suggests some guidelines for using the Processor Speed and Memory table:

User Model 1 - Using HOBO Data loggers only, no data nodes - traditional desktop user
User Model 2 - Using HOBO Data loggers and up to 5 data nodes, 20 sensors
User Model 3 - Using HOBO Data loggers and up to 50 data nodes, 100 sensors
User Model 4 - Using HOBO Data loggers and up to 100 data nodes, 200 sensors

Disk Space - Defining the disk space requirements for HOBOware depends on the proposed use.   The table above describes the disk space needed for a traditional desktop user, allowing for installation of the program and storage of data files.  For users of HOBO data nodes, the space requirements depend on a variety of factors, including the number of nodes, the number of sensors, the frequency of data sampling, the longevity of deployments, and other factors.  Please see the FAQ on the Onset Web site for more details, at http://www.onsetcomp.com/support/loggers
