CodeSentry: On-Premise System Requirements & Supported File Formats


CodeSentry is built as a SaaS hosted solution but can be installed locally within your own domain if required. The on-premise installation uses Gravity and consequently the operating system and hardware requirements for CodeSentry are closely related to those for Gravity as described below. 

Platform Support

It is important to note that CodeSentry can only be installed on Linux systems.

Linux Distribution Version
Amazon 2
Centos 7.2, 7.9, 8.0-8.4

Hardware requirements are specific to the workload running in the cluster but the following guidelines are recommended to support bare cluster installations.

Role Memory CPU Disk
master 58GB

Intel Xeon® Platinum 8175M processors with Advanced Vector Extension (AVX-512) instruction set (or better)

25 virtual cores

High-IOPS, low latency disks are recommended.

node 18GB 7 virtual cores 600GB


Installation Types

There are three installation types available.

  • Out of the box IP access

  • Local Domain with TLS

  • Local Load Balancer (needs spare IP) with TLS : Recommended For Production
