What is the recommended configuration for Recognition Server?

  • Can I use the server as a Processing Station as well or should I use separate computers?

For optimal performance it is recommended that you install the Server Manager and the Processing Station on different computers in the LAN. Then the Processing Station will be able to use 100% of the CPU time for OCR providing maximum productivity, while not struggling for resources with the Server Manager.

However, if you have a limited number of computers at hand, or if you have one multi-core server that you want to use for a standalone installation, then you can install the Server Manager and the Processing Station on the same computer. In this case you should check the option “Low processing priority” in the Processing Station Properties dialog box. That will make the OCR process run with lower priority relatively to other system processes, and Windows will allocate enough CPU time for the Server Manager to do efficient load balancing.
