Legacy Documentation
You're viewing legacy documentation for API Fortress (deployed via an on-premises container). To view documentation for the new SaaS version of API Fortress — now known as Sauce Labs API Testing and Monitoring (with Sauce Connect tunnels) — see API Testing on the Sauce Labs Cloud.

Self-Hosted System Requirements

The one server setup for API Fortress on-premise is a quick way to get things started in a protected environment. While not ideal for availability or performance, works exactly as expected and provides all the features of the cloud version.

Minimum Hardware Requirements
CPU: Intel based high frequency quad core processor
Memory: 16 GB RAM
HDD: 250 GB Memory: the memory impacts significantly on the speed of queries on big data sets. 32 GB is a recommended setup HDD: All API Fortress reports and metrics are stored. 10 million reports + 30 million metrics can require up to 250GB of disk space

Software Requirements
OS: a recent Linux distribution

Docker Deployment Docker: 1.12
For the Docker deployment to succeed and to ease further updates, the server has to be able to communicate with https://hub.docker.com

PostgreSQL: relational database for structured data
MongoDB: document database for reports and metrics
RabbitMQ: message queue
Tomcat: dashboard and engine application
AFScheduler: the API Fortress scheduler
AFMailer: the API Fortress mailer
AFConnector: dynamic data dispatcher for notifications
AFDownloadAgent: the downloader agent (actually performing HTTP calls)

We assume this deployment will be able to access the services to be tested.

Further Connections
HTTP(80) and/or HTTPS(443) inbound traffic enabled for every location that will need access to the dashboards. Ports and services may vary based on system requirements.
