Hardware could be tricky….to high of a threshold, and you put users off.
What’s the use case for CX? Unlike CR (which is usually installed, and
accessed, on a single machine), I see CX as being run on a box somewhere (be it
a desktop, laptop or NAS device of some sort), then it’s accessed from another
machine. That splits the load (imo….in some respects, I likely don’t
understand how everything hangs together).
Memory wise, I only ever ran into issues when CX was trying to load entire
archives into memory for processing – once you addressed that, I just let java
use the default memory…and everything is running well (aside from the library
load issues experienced elsewhere).
I forget what the java logs showed, but memory usage was pretty good….spikes
and drops as image hashs were created, but usually the java default memory size
was more than enough (I *think* java assigns ¼ of the available memory).
CPU wise, my desktop has an Intel i5, while the Surface has an Intel m3. Both
can happily have CX running while I do other stuff…although the desktop pretty
much does nothing other than function as a Plex server.

Oooffff...8GB RAM would put me off CX. No ifs and buts about it.

Thinking about the question of responsiveness, loading libraries, etc I
honestly think we need to decide what a minimum supportable configuration is
for hardware to target.
Given that our system requires at least two processes (the backend server and
a browser) and both of them can be resource intensive I think a minimum of 8G
RAM is reasonable. I’m not much of a hardware guy so I would like input on
what a minimum CPU should be for running CX on a single box.
Any other minimum requirement ideas?
