HARVESTER Version 3.5 Options

HARVESTER Version 3.5 can be operated in two configurations: as a standalone system or as a fully network enabled application with a multi-user capability. In the former configuration, both server and client are installed onthe same machine, while the latter configuration will require a separate server and at least one client PC. Both configurations are built on Microsoft SQL Server 2005 architecture, however while we recommend Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition for Standard Version users, we recommend Microsoft SQL Server 2005 for professional users

The HARVESTER Version 3.5 client requires approximately 49 MB of hard disk space to install. In addition to this, Microsoft SQL Server 2005 will require between 200 MB and 1.2GB of disk space (depending on the version installed). Additionally, we recommend at least an initial 5 GB of free disk space to accommodate natural database growth and for the storing of intercept associated files.

Please note that users are responsible for providing and installing Microsoft SQL Server 2005/Express, as well as setting up database users and securing database by installing Microsoft patches and implementing security recommendations as recommended by Microsoft.

Standalone Options
This configuration will suit most users and radio enthusiasts and makes use of the benefits of Microsoft SQL Server 2005 architecture to provide a fast and robust database. Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition is especially suited to this configuration, avoiding both system and processor overheads while gaining all the benefits of a professional database. This option is limited to a single user and requires no ODBC setup.

Software Options:
  Harvester Version 3.5 Lite Edition
  Harvester Version 3.5 Single Client Edition

Minimum Suggested Requirements:
Server/Client Microsoft Windows 2000, XP or Vista
  Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition
  Microsoft SQL Native Client
  Disk Space 300 MB
Networked Options
The networked option will suit more advanced and professional users who require collection to be simultaneously performed by a number of collectors at different intercept positions. Again making full use of Microsoft SQL Server 2005 architecture to provide a robust collection and storage platform, it is recommended that network configuration installations use the full Microsoft SQL Server 2005 version to avoid tablespace and connection limitations imposed in the Express edition. There are an unlimited number of users though each client connecting to the database through ODBC over your TCP/IP LAN will require a separate software licence.

Software Options:
  Harvester Version 3.5 Standard Edition
  Harvester Version 3.5 Professional Edition

Minimum Suggested Requirements:
Server Microsoft Windows 2000 Server, 2003 Server, XP or Vista
  Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express or higher
  Microsoft IIS 6.0
  Network Card
  Disk Space 300 to 1500 MB
Client Microsoft Windows 2000, XP or Vista
  Microsoft SQL Native Client
  Network Card
  Disk Space 49 MB
