2.1 System Requirements

SDMetrics runs on platforms supporting the Java™ 1.6 or better runtime environment (JRE). Memory usage depends on the size of the models analyzed and typically ranges from 40MB for small systems (a few hundred model elements) to 500MB-1GB for large systems (several hundred thousand model elements). The GUI requires at least a 17" color display. Disk space required for the installation is less than 10MB (not counting the JRE). Typically, the hardware that runs your UML modeling tools will also be sufficient to run SDMetrics.

If you do not already have the JRE installed on your machine, obtain the latest version of the JRE for your platform at http://www.java.com/. Follow the download and installation instructions provided there.
