Primary computer

The system hardware requirements for the computer that the Ricoh ProcessDirector base product (and most features) is installed on are:

  • A computer that can run one of these operating systems:
    • Windows Server 2016 64-bit
    • Windows Server 2019 64-bit
  • 200 GB free hard-drive space on the same drive that Ricoh ProcessDirector is installed on.
  • Minimum of 4 GB available RAM is required.

    Significantly more available RAM is required for high system loads. Large jobs, many jobs, jobs with many documents, workflow steps that run in parallel, and memory-intensive external programs all increase system loads.

      Important:
    • A minimum of 12 GB available RAM is required if you are using one or more document processing features, for example:
      • AFP Support
      • PDF Document Support
      • Archive
      • Automated Verification
      • Inserter
      • Postal Enablement
      • Preference Management

      Depending on the number of documents you process, you might need additional RAM or free hard-drive space.

The features listed below have additional hardware requirements. These requirements are added to the requirements listed for the primary computer; they do not replace those requirements.

  • Advanced Transform feature
    • Minimum 3 GB additional free hard-drive space on the same drive that Ricoh ProcessDirector is installed on.
        Note:
      • Large jobs may require additional RAM to process efficiently.
  • Ricoh Transform features
      Note:
    • These requirements apply only to the Ricoh Transform features (such as, PostScript/PDF to AFP and Ricoh PCL to AFP), not to the Advanced Transform feature.
    • Minimum of an additional 10 GB free hard-drive space.
    • An additional 512 MB RAM for every CPU core, but no less than 2 GB.

      For example, if the computer has:

      • One dual-core processor, it must have an additional 2 GB RAM.
      • Two quad-core processors, it must have an additional 4 GB RAM.
      • Three quad-core processors, it must have an additional 6 GB RAM.
      • Four quad-core processors, it must have an additional 8 GB RAM.

  • Ink Savvy
