1 For the minimum server profile, the Maximum server memory of SQL Server must be limited to 512 MB.

2 To increase this value, you must proportionally reduce the Archiver's maximum bitrate.

3 When playback exceeds 100 Mbps, subtract the equivalent bandwidth from the maximum archiving bandwidth.

4 The intended throughput requires specific hardware and software configurations.
