Maestro Center Prerequisites


A typical center machine spec:

  • Windows Server 2008R2, 2012 or 2012R2 (64 bit OS)
  • 2nd Generation Intel Core Processor (x64 Only) and above with a minimum of 4 cores and hyper threading enabled (8 threads in total)
  • 8 GB RAM
  • 10 GB free disk space


A center also requires MSSQL database server on which the two Maestro Center databases (configuration and run time data) will be created.

Based on usage and logs collected into the center, the disk space requirement might rise.

Maestro Center
Firewall Prerequisites
Maestro Agent Port 5746 opened for outbound communication, or for bidirectional communication if the Center is a source or target in a CFD Task.
Maestro Center Web Console Port 443 open for inbound communication.

Center machine must have a trusted server certificate installed or a self-signed one must be generated and installed (the product does not enforce it, but it is a 'must' for security reasons).
If the center is also part of file distribution processes (i.e. its agent is transferring files to other agents), then also read the recommendation for agent right below.

Maestro Agent Prerequisites


For a typical agent performing concurrent CFD tasks of which none is too large in amount of files/size (ARA use cases)
Windows Server 2008 R2 or 2012 or 2012 R2 (64 bit OS)
2nd Generation Intel Core Processor (x64 Only) and above with a minimum of 2 cores and hyper threading enabled (4 threads in total)
4 GB RAM
10 GB free disk space

For an agent dealing with large amount of files (millions) and large volume (Terabytes):
Windows Server 2008 R2 or 2012 or 2012 R2 (64 bit OS)
2nd Generation Intel Core Processor (x64 Only) and above with a minimum of 4 cores and hyper threading enabled (8 threads in total)
16 GB RAM
50GB free disk space.

In large use case scenarios, its not recommended to install the Maestro agent on the system disk as in case of load tuning error, the system disk might be completely filled with tasks data and cause system malfunction. In addition, an agent running many CFDs concurrently, might require tuning of some of the above parameters (mainly memory/free disk space) according to the total volume of the expected load.
