Server Requirements

KAVart SE relies on multiple programs in order to function properly. These programs are either normally licensed by a company or are free to install, saving licensing costs on KAVart SE itself. These programs are Microsoft Excel, Windows Task Scheduler, and the InterSystems ODBC drivers.

KAVart SE runs best on a designated reporting Windows server (either physical or virtual) but can also be run on a standard Windows PC. The recommended server specifications are listed out below. These are the minimum specifications needed to run KAVart SE.

Cache Requirements

A connection to the cache server is required to retrieve data from the system. This connection is established by utilizing an ODBC connection from the InterSystems ODBC drivers. The ODBC drivers must match the version of KAVart SE. For example, if the 64-bit version of KAVart SE is installed then the 64-bit ODBC drivers are needed. Below is a list of information that is needed to establish the ODBC connection. Please note, the Superserver port will need to be opened for "listening" and the Cache User will need to be set up in Security Plus with an identical username and access to the REPORTER and DBMS applications.

  • ODBC or AES license; no actual AES knowledge required
  • Cache Version
  • Cache Server IP address
  • Cache Superserver port number
  • Destination UCI
  • Cache Username/Password
