Prerequisite

The only prerequisite to run Sonar is to have Java (Oracle JDK 6 onwards) installed on your machine.

Hardware Requirements

  1. The Sonar web server requires at least 500Mb of RAM to run efficiently.
  2. The amount of disk space you need will depend on how much code you analyze with Sonar. As an example, Nemo the public instance of Sonar, has more than 13 millions Lines of Code under analysis with 4 years of history. Nemo is currently running on a Amazon EC2 small instance, using  about 10 Gb of drive space
