Providing Sufficient Client Hardware Resources

For best client performance for high interactivity applications, provide sufficient or generous hardware resources to your end users (typically, employees). Requirements may vary according to your deployment.

The more memory that is available on your client machines, the greater the number of views that can be cached. For more information, see:

The speed of the processors (CPU) on your client machines will affect how quickly the Siebel application user interface is rendered.

For best performance for the high interactivity client, which is used by employee applications like Siebel Call Center, it is generally recommended to include the latest supported version of Microsoft Internet Explorer in your testing. More recent versions often include fixes and performance enhancements.

For best performance for the standard interactivity client, which is used by customer applications like Siebel eService, you must determine the minimum capabilities of customer environments, such as browser to support, processor speed, or expected Internet connection speed. Customer applications must support a wide range of customer environments. Accordingly, you should generally minimize the complexity of such applications.

For Siebel client hardware and other platform requirements and recommendations, see System Requirements and Supported Platforms on Siebel SupportWeb.
