Specs needed to run SikuliX

Asked by Simon Chase on 2017-10-02

What are the very minimum specs that you think you'd need to run SikuliX? I'd expect it to be rather slow, but still usable, and the preciseness of image matching would be rather low.

--- the preciseness of image matching would be rather low.
That is wrong: the preciseness does not depend on processing power, since it is a defined number-crunching process, whose total processing time only depends on the size in pixels of the search-region (max the monitor size) and the size in pixels of the image searched for.

So the answer to your question is:
The minimum specs needed depend on what you expect to be the average turnaround time of a successful search operation.

For example on a system with a 2GHz+ processor and 4MB+ memory, the search time for an image of 200x200 pixels on a screen of about 1600x1200 should be less than 500 milli-seconds.

The smaller the search region for a given image, the faster the search.

So on a given system, that can run SikuliX, you have to make your own experience about the search performance.

A system capable to run SikuliX must have a valid Java 8 installation.

I am using Sikuli for UI testing since 2011. The lowest reasonable spec to have running Sikuli plus application under test for me is: 2 cores @2+GHz ,2GB Ram, and 1280x1024 display resolution. I am also taking care to control Sikuli scan rate when AUT will need more cpu power.

Can you help with this problem?
