System requirements for the Node.js agent

Before installing the Node.js agent confirm you can meet the following requirements:

  • There is a deployed application to be analyzed, and the web application technology is supported by Contrast.

  • The agent has network connectivity with the Contrast server.

Using the Node.js agent requires increasing the application's available CPU and memory due to the increased processing and analysis of inbound information. Using the Node.js agent will use more resources than your application on its own. CPU load will also increase but this heavily influenced by the specific application architecture and existing CPU usage profile.
