Artifactory has been tested and verified on Linux, Windows (Vista and higher), Solaris and Mac OS X. You should be able to run Artifactory on other platforms, but these have not been tested.
You must run Artifactory with JDK 8 and above, preferably JDK 8 update 45 and above.
You can download the latest JDK from the Oracle Java SE Download Site.
JAVA_HOME and JRE_HOME
Make sure your JAVA_HOME environment variable correctly points to your JDK 8 installation.
If you also have JRE_HOME defined in your system, this will take precedence over JAVA_HOME and therefore you need to either point JRE_HOME to your JDK 8 installation, or remove the JRE_HOME definition.
JVM Memory Allocation
While not a strict requirement, we recommend that you modify the JVM memory parameters used to run Artifactory.
You should reserve at least 512MB for Artifactory, and the recommended values for JVM parameters are:
Recommended JVM parameters
-server -Xms512m -Xmx2g -Xss256k -XX:+UseG1GC
Repository size and number of concurrent users
The larger your repository or number of concurrent users, the larger you need to make the -Xms and -Xmx values accordingly
Artifactory has been tested with the latest versions of Google Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari, and is also backwards compatible with Internet Explorer 9
The following table provides hardware recommendations for a single server machine:
|Number of developers||OS/JVM||Processor||Memory (RAM) for JVM Heap||Storage|
|1 - 20||64 bit||4 cores||4GB||Fast disk with free space that is at least 3 times the total size of stored artifacts|
|20 - 100||64 bit||4 cores||8GB||Fast disk with free space that is at least 3 times the total size of stored artifacts|
|100 - 200||64 bit||8 cores (16 cores recommended)||12GB||Fast disk with free space that is at least 3 times the total size of stored artifacts (backup SAN recommended)|
|200+||64 bit||Contact JFrog support for a recommended setup.|
For the purposes of this table, a build machine is considered equivalent to 10 developers
High Availability Configuration
If you are running Artifactory in a High Availability configuration, to maintain high system performance in case of single or multiple server crash, we recommend following the recommended hardware guidelines above for each of the HA server instances. For more details, please refer to Artifactory High Availability.
To avoid network latency issues when reading and writing artifacts data, we strongly recommend creating the database either on the same machine on which Artifactory is running (database engine and storage) or on a fast network storage. This recommendation is critical when using fullDb (whereby files are served from database BLOBs) and the file system cache is small.
For supported databases and more details, please refer to Changing the Default Storage.
Artifactory should be run with its bundled Tomcat 8 servlet container.
