If you are processing more than 10GB of log data (uncompressed), use of a 32-bit operating system or insufficient memory or disk space may result in errors or crashes. For more details see the System Requirements page.

Detailed instructions: The instructions below are brief instructions for this platform only. For more detailed installation instructions for all platforms, see the online Installation documentation.
