Information on the mininum memory requirement for Spectrum

UPDATED: August 29, 2017

The minimum memory requirement for Spectrum 11.1 and older is 8GB. In Spectrum documentation prior to version 9.2, documentation stated a 2GB minimum, which allowed the Spectrum server to run without any modules. As of Spectrum 9.3, the memory requirement is 8GB, regardless of modules installed. This memory requirement also accounts for any databases installed to the Spectrum server.

As of Spectrum 12.0, the minimum requirement for memory is now 16GB.

Specific modules may require additional memory. Please refer to the Release Notes for the version of Spectrum you are installing for the exact memory requirements. Release notes can be found on the documentation page for your version of Spectrum.
