The server side consists of three components: the crawler, the database and the web server. For optimal performance these components are running on separate machines. However, if a simpler architecture is desired for evaluation purposes and limited usage is expected, they can be combined on a single or two machines with appropriate resources.
Software requirements, crawling server
OS: Linux preferred, Windows also OK
Java: Oracle JRE 1.6+
Software requirements, database server
Oracle 11g for the database with JChem Oracle Cartridge installed
Hardware requirements, crawling server
Depends mainly on the number and size of documents initial crawled and added or modified in each period
At least 4 cores are recommended
4-8 GB RAM or more
500 MB disk space for the application
Hardware requirements, database server
data storage disk space requirements highly depend on the number of structures, approximately 3-4 GB for 1 M structures
Software and Hardware requirements, web interface (server and client)
The web interface is provided by Plexus Connect. Please consult its requirements.
