Operating system requirements
A freshly installed ActiveGate can run your private synthetic monitors on the following operating systems (both HTTP and browser monitors).
Unsupported Windows versions for testing purposes only
If you only want to test private synthetic on a non-production machine, for example your own desktop, you can install synthetic-enabled ActiveGates on unsupported Windows versions, such as Windows 10 or Windows Server 2012.
Antivirus software on Windows
We don't support synthetic-enbled ActiveGates on a Windows machine with antivirus software installed.

1 Not recommended for Windows Server-based ActiveGates. This is just a minimal requirement. We recommend at least 25GB of free disk space and 8GB RAM because of the enhancements planned for future releases.
2 As determined in our internal tests. The actual value may vary, depending on the complexity of your monitors. Calculated as 5000 tests (maximum for a single environment) run once every minute (maximum frequency).
