When installing Humio self-install within your own environment there are system requirements for the deployment. This document covers:
Browsers — Web browsers used to interact with and use the Humio dashboard
Java — Java Virtual machines and variants for running Humio server
Humio works within the following browsers:
Google Chrome; the two most recent versions
The following browsers should work but are not officially supported:
Apple Safari; at least the three most recent versions
Mozilla Firefox; at least the three most recent versions
Operation with other browsers is unknown and not officially supported.
Humio requires a Java version 11 or later JVM to function properly. We operate Humio Cloud using the Azul-provided Zulu JVM version 13. Our Docker container uses this JVM as well.
We recommend you use one of the following well-tested distributions of the Java runtime when operating Humio.
Java version 11
Open J9 — We've not yet qualified Humio on OpenJ9 (vs HotSpot) and so cannot recommend using it as yet.
Azul Zing — We have tried Zing 11 and in our testing thus far the C4 (or GPGC) garbage collector and Falcon C2 JIT work, providing predictable, low pause collections and efficient execution.
Oracle's Graal and SubstrateVM — Is an interesting alternative to the C2 HotSpot JIT in the OpenJDK. It is not yet supported for production use with Humio. We plan to investigate and support it as it matures.
