Computer Specs for Kaluza software

Recommended Posts

Hi Ernie

 

A question for you - thought I would put this on the forum for the benefit of others. It has been noted that the computer specs on the website are outdated.

 

The hospital currently uses Lenovo as its preferred supplier. Would you be able to find out if any if the current models has equivalent specifications to the model recommended (i.e. Lenovo S30 with Tesla C1060/2050)?

 

Thanks

What's the use case for the customer? Kaluza works fine on just a basic laptop, but if you start to use more files, more events, more parameters, then the need for better hardware arises.

Hello, I am also trying to get a better idea of hardware requirements for our users. Most of our computers are using i5 processors with 8GB of RAM, and onboard graphics. For some users, it seems to run okay, but others experience a great deal of lag when adjusting the plots. Specifically, one user on a Windows 10 computer has to double click on an invidivual plot, and then adjust it to make up for the lag that occurs when they try to adjust from the screen that shows multiple plots.

 

More info:

 

File size: ~5-12MB LMD files, ~50-100MB kaluza analysis files

Number of events---150,000

Number of colors---10 colors

Typical use case: Files are saved to network share. We load these raw data files in Kaluza, then perform analysis.

For any decent computer, and it sounds like yours are, that shouldn't be a challenging data set. Is there the possibility that the computer is using a network drive for the TEMP folder location? (Kaluza makes temporary copies of files.)

One way to do it is to to right click on "This PC" in an Explorer window and choose "Properties" from the menu. Then click on "Advanced system settings". In the window that appears, click on the "Environment Variables" button. The window that appears should show settings for the TEMP and TMP locations, as well as a number of other things.
