What are the minimum system resources required to run OpenLoad?

OpenLoad requires at least a Pentium IV (1 GHz), 1 GB RAM, and 5 GB of free disk space to install and run properly. Unlike standard load testing tools, OpenLoad runs as a web-based service allowing you to access the application from any browser on your network.

As a result, it requires the minimum processing power and memory as your average lightweight application server. Attempting to run OpenLoad on a system with less than 1 GB RAM may result in intermittent out of memory errors by the Java Virtual Machine.
