  • • 1GB — Typical project size is < 10K records.
  • • 2GB — Typical project size is 10K - 100K records.
  • • 3GB — Typical project size is > 100K records.

* Per concurrent Acumen instance and in addition to any memory needed for the operating system and other applications that may run in parallel with Acumen.

If the operating system is a 64-bit version, then Acumen will take advantage of the extended address space and therefore we recommend adding additional memory to improve performance.


Multi-Threading

There is no option in Acumen to control multi-threading.

Acumen tries to use as many CPUs as the computer has available when performing certain calculations (running Diagnostics, Risk Analysis, and so on).
