What are the system requirements for the RDS Windows sensor?
The RDS Windows sensor supports both 32-bit and 64-bit platforms and is designed to run on both client and server versions of the Microsoft Windows operating system.

Processor and memory
Given the lightweight nature of the RDS sensor, there are no significant requirements regarding CPU and RAM; any machine capable of properly running the supported versions of the operating system should be able to run the client sensor without any noticeable impact.
To optimize the data collection and ensure that no activity is lost even when the machine is disconnected from the backend system, the RDS Windows sensor uses a local database to store the data that it collects. The upper limit for this local storage is 100 megabytes by default, meaning that any machine with over 100 megabytes of free space is suitable for installation.
Note: The sensor and its database are stored on the primary partition of the hard drive.
