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.
