CYMA System Requirements

The following system requirements are valid for CYMA installations only. If you are looking for third party system requirements please visit our third party product page and click on the appropriate company.

CYMA Version 18 Configurations

Actian PSQL v12 is the underlying database engine used by CYMA and generally drives the system requirements. You must purchase a separate license to operate Actian PSQL v12 with your CYMA product. If you have obtained and installed Actian PSQL v12 from a source other than CYMA, please ensure that it meets the requirements below. The Actian PSQL v12 database comes in several different versions, but CYMA Version 18 uses Actian PSQL v12 or greater.

  • Actian PSQL v12 Workgroup - Actian PSQL v12 Workgroup engine is used for standalone installations; it is the recommended engine if you have five or fewer concurrent users of CYMA. The standard Workgroup engine comes with a license for five concurrent Actian PSQL users; a 30 day trial is included on the CYMA install CD.
  • Actian PSQL v12 Server - Actian PSQL v12 Server engine is used for true server environments. The Actian PSQL v12 Server supports Windows Windows 2003/2008/2012 Server environments. You may license 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, or 250 user count versions of the Server engine.
  • Actian PSQL v12 Client - Actian PSQL v12 Client engine is used for client/server and peer-to-peer installations. It is the required component to install if you wish to connect a CYMA Workstation to a CYMA multiuser or server configuration on both Actian PSQL Server or Workgroup installations.
