Thru Node Minimum Requirements

Requirements will vary depending on utilization and usage.

If file processing options are included in the flow configurations, such as encryption and compression, more hardware resources will be needed.

Operating Systems


  • Make sure you're running the latest version of Windows 10 / 11 or Windows Server 2019. (also tested with Windows Server 2012 which is close to end of life)

  • PowerShell 5.1 (or greater)

  • Windows Task Scheduler


Ubuntu 18.04 / 20.04 / 20.04.4
RedHat 7.9 / 8.6 / 9.2

Minimum Hardware Requirements to run the Thru Node :

  • Processor: 1.4 GHz 64-bit processor or faster processor. CPU cores - (2) cores for few flows, little processing, (4) cores for more flows and/or more processing

  • RAM: 8 gigabyte (GB) with no file processing and 16 gigabytes (GB) with file processing (encryption/decryption/compression/decompression).

  • Hard disk space: Varies depending on the type of flow configurations. For LAN transfers only, a minimum of 100GB is recommended. For high file volumes and large files, storage may need to be as much as 1 TB. Retention of files and configuration of retention policies will also affect storage requirements.

Note : Thru Nodes has built in support to work on machines configured with proxies.

Antivirus / Malware scanning is not included in the Node, you must configure your own solution on machines that the Node is installed on.
