AI Powered Auto-curation
Using the AI Powered Auto-curation feature you'll be able to increase the total amount of normalized software in your Inventory repositories. This is done using AI that integrates with the inventory consolidation process. By using AI your organization will benefit from significant numbers of normalized software and a reduced manual effort needed to normalize software.
Before you enable AI Powered Auto-curation, ensure you've met the Tachyon 5.1 - Requirements and completed the Tachyon 5.1 - Preparation steps, in particular the additional disk and memory requirements on the Tachyon web server.
The minimum total disk space required for the downloaded AI Package ZIP is approximately 12.5 GB at installation. This includes:
- Binary and support files for AI and the directory structure is 8 GB
- AIPackage ZIP file is 4 GB
While the downloaded AI Package is 5 GB, the unzipped contents are approximately 12.5 GB and are extracted to C:\ProgramData\1E\SLA Platform\AI\
Please note, the required disk space reduces to 8.2 GB after the first Catalog sync with the cloud. During the sync a check is made for any newer AI packages. If there is one, it's downloaded and a hash check of the ZIP file is made to make sure it's not corrupted. Once all checks are complete, the AI Package ZIP is deleted from C:\ProgramData\1E\SLA Platform\AI\ leaving an 8 GB disk space requirement.
1E Catalog 2.0 or later is required for the AI to work. 1E Catalog is included in the Tachyon Platform zip, and installed by Tachyon Setup.

If you're only using a System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) connector then use the below SCCM database query as a guide for how much extra RAM you need on the Tachyon web server before installing Tachyon. After installation, we recommend using the below SLA-Data database query to double-check memory requirements. However, additional RAM will be required if you're going to use a Tachyon connector (for Inventory or Patch Success) either on its own, or with other connectors including SCCM. In this case, use the SLA-Data database query after installation and when the connectors are collecting data.
Physical memory for AI Powered Auto-curation is calculated on the basis of the number of records the AI has to process. Use the accompanying table as a quick reference for the memory requirements needed by the AI.
For virtual machines, the AI Engine action will not work if you're using a dynamic memory configuration. You'll need to allocate dedicated memory.
You can also run the following query on your SCCM database to calculate your memory requirements. This is primarily aimed at people who have not already installed Tachyon and want to estimate the required RAM:
Run this query on SLA-Data if you already have Tachyon installed and are considering enabling AI:
