2.1 System Requirements

SDMetrics runs on platforms supporting a Java™ 8 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). 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 a JRE installed on your machine, obtain a JRE of your choice for Java 8 or higher (for example, the AdoptOpenJDK with Hotspot JVM from and follow the installation instructions provided with your JRE distribution.
