Server system requirements

RapidMiner Server uses the hard disk for storing the program, log files, and temporary files. While the program itself does not need more than 1GB of free hard disk space, depending on your configuration, logs can consume significantly more space. Therefore, it is a good idea, if possible, to reserve 100GB of hard disk space to assist in trace and troubleshooting.
