Pre-ACSIA Installation Minimum Requirements Check with AMR

  • Updated

Like any other software application, ACSIA needs some preliminary requirements to be satisfied to communicate with connected clients and perform its tasks.  

In short, the ACSIA Server platform requires the following minimum specs:

  • The server can be deployed in a physical or virtual environment
  • In the case of a virtual environment, the server will need a Virtual Machine which can run on every hypervisor of choice (VMWare, HyperV, VirtualBox, Proxmox, etc...) but not on containers (Docker, Kubernetes, LXD, LXC, Vagrant, etc...)
  • Ubuntu Server 20.04 LTS is the only supported distribution at the moment for the ACSIA Server
  • 16 GB RAM (in virtual environments, they must be dedicated)
  • 8 vCPU
  • 200 GB Storage SSD (as a minimum, depending on retention policy)
  • Network connectivity (to download and install the server, receive our threat intelligence feeds, connect with the clients, upgrade the system, and verify the license)
  • Partitioning: There is no specific partitioning required for ACSIA VM; however, if you want to set up an LVM (Logical Volume Manager) you need to give the /var volume at least 200 GB (dedicated).


As the Dectar team, we provide you with a tool that will allow you to check these prerequisites.

This article will explain how to obtain and use the AMR (ACSIA Minimum Requirements) tool.


In the Ubuntu environment where you will install ACSIA SOS, the file should be run.
Here are the steps you can follow;


  1. Download file in the Ubuntu environment. Here is the file. Copy the URL of the file.  
    wget [URL]
  2. Ensure the script is executable using the command and execute the command line. 
    chmod +x && ./


For example, on the above machine, the required RAM is not provided, so output: "ERROR: Not Enough RAM!!!"

You can view the details of ACSIA SOS Minimum Requirements in Section 3. Installation and Configuration of the ACSIA XDR Plus Installation and User Administration Guide.
