- The Sonar web SonarQube web server requires at least 500Mb 768 Mb of RAM to run efficiently.
- The amount of disk space you need will depend on how much code you analyze with SonarSonarQube. As an example, Nemo the public instance of SonarSonarQube, has more than 13 10 millions Lines lines of Code code under analysis with 4 years of history.
