System Requirements

HOBOware 3.7.4 has some basic common System Requirements that are presented in the list below.   If using HOBOware as the data collection server for a network of Indoor Wireless HOBO data nodes you may want to consider the configuration guidelines provided in the table. 

  • PC: Windows 8, Windows 7 (Pro, Ultimate and Home Premium).
  • Mac: OS X Versions 10.8.x, 10.9.x and 10.10.x.
  • Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.7.0_17 and above (32-bit or 64-bit on Windows).  Please note that version 1.6, also known as Java 6, is no longer supported.  See the time zone note below.
  • One of the following Internet browsers: Safari 7 and 8, Microsoft Internet Explorer 10 and 11, as well as the most recent versions of Firefox and Google Chrome. 
  • Minimum screen resolution of 1024x768. Recommended screen resolution of 1280x800 or greater particularly for non-English users.
  • 256+ colors
  • Processor Speed, Memory and Disk Space

User Model 4 3 2 1

The User Model row suggests some guidelines for using the Processor Speed and Memory table:

  • User Model 1  - Using HOBO Data loggers only, no data nodes – traditional desktop user
  • User Model 2  - Using HOBO Data loggers and up to 5 data nodes, 20 sensors
  • User Model 3 – Using HOBO Data loggers and up to 50 data nodes, 100 sensors
  • User Model 4 – Using HOBO Data loggers and up to 100 data nodes, 200 sensors

Disk Space – Defining the disk space requirements for HOBOware depends on the proposed use.   The table above describes the disk space needed for a traditional desktop user, allowing for installation of the program and storage of data files.  For users of HOBO data nodes, the space requirements depend on a variety of factors, including the number of nodes, the number of sensors, the frequency of data sampling, the longevity of deployments, and other factors.  Please see the FAQ on the Onset Web site for more details, at http://www.onsetcomp.com/support/loggers

NOTICE

HOBOware 3.7.4 is built with Java 1.7.0_71 on Windows and on OS X.  HOBOware no longer runs on Java 6.  Use of Java v1.4.x, Java 5 and Java 6 are specifically no longer supported.

HOBOware 3.7.4 on Mac is built for OS X 10.8 as a minimum.  While HOBOware may run using a previous version of OS X, earlier versions of OS X are specifically no longer supported.

Regardless of the Java runtime version in use, it is up to every user to ensure that their Java installation is up to date regarding the Olson Timezone Database for their locale.  Please see this article on the Oracle Website that discusses the topic: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/timezones-137583.html

Automated Data Delivery
*
With data delivery, you can automatically save recorded sensor data from nodes in your network to a single .txt, .csv, or .xls file on a regular schedule.
