System requirements

InfiMONITOR can be installed both on the hardware and virtual platform (VMware ESXi, Microsoft Hyper-V, Citrix XenServer are supported) from ISO image. 


 "PCnet-FAST III (Am79C970)", "PCNet PCI II (Am79C970A)" cards are not supported in VMware.


InfiMONITOR offers web-server functionality, it does not require an underlying Operating Sytem (Windows, Linux, etc.) as prerequisite.

Below are the recommended system requirements for the platform depending on the devices number to monitor by the InfiMONITOR:

DevicesUp to 200Up to 2 000Up to 10 000
CPUIntel Core i3 3 GHz, 2 cores levelIntel Core i7 3 GHz, 8 cores levelIntel Xeon 2.0 GHz, 16 cores level
RAMfrom 4 Gbfrom 16 Gbfrom 32 Gb
HDDfrom 200 Gbfrom 1 TBfrom 10 TB

Hardware controller in RAID 10 level
Table - The platform system requirements

When an operator opens an InfiMONITOR web page in his web browser at client computer, the web page requires some place in RAM to operate smoothly. This is the reason for hardware requirements for client computer, regardless of an operating system installed on client computer.


Mandatory requirement to CPU it must be x64 architecture.

In order to install InfiMONITOR on the virtual platform server's CPU must support hardware virtualization enabled in the BIOS.

Installation preparation

The following will be required for the InfiMONITOR deployment:

  • Platform for the deployment: the dedicated server or virtual machine conforming to the system requirements
  • The ISO image with the latest InfiMONITOR software version from the official InfiNet Wireless FTP server - For the installation to the dedicated server it is required to record the image to a CD or USB flash-drive.


Step 1 - Download 

  • In case the InfiMONITOR installs to the virtual machine: connect the ISO image with the installation program to it, in the virtual machine BIOS specify to boot from CD-ROM
  • In case the InfiMONITOR installs to the dedicated server: insert the compact disk or USB flash-drive with the previously recorded installation program. In the BIOS specify to boot from install device.

Step 2 - The installation program launch

Start the server or virtual machine. In BIOS specify to boot from: CD-ROM or USB flash-drive.

After boot loader start the following menu will appear on the screen, select "Install InfiMONITOR"

At this stage the installation program will find out all supported network adapters and prompts to select the one to use for InfiMONITOR.

Select the desired adapter and click the "Enter" button.

Now, after finish with the network configuration, the installation program will notify about the installation readinesss of InfiMONITOR.


 The installation program will delete all the data on server or virtual machine hard disk. Please, make sure that the disk has no useful information, after the installation start, its recovery wil be impossible.

If you want to proceed with InfiMONITOR installation, click the "Continue" button.

The installation procedure can take several minutes. After succeful install the installation program will notify that InfiMONITOR has been installed and ready to start. Click the "Reboot" button.

Step 4 - The InfiMONITOR first start

After installation has been finished, the system will reboot. Make sure the server or the virtual machine has BIOS boot settings set to hard disk now.

The startup may take about 1-2 minutes, after which you will be prompted to enter the service mode.

The InfiMONITOR first start - is an important stage for various procedures which could not be performed at the installation stage. Therefore, right after the prompt appearance access to the monitoring system can be impeded for about 1-2 minutes.
