  • Hi there,

    I just want to ask whether I can install mango on respberry pi 3 for creating an embedded system.

    Best regards

  • Hi Ramhuzaini,

    Our MangoES product uses a more powerful single board computer so that it could be more generally capable for end users, but the Raspberry Pi 3 is certainly capable of running Mango and functioning well, though it may be overwhelmed by lesser numbers of data points than other machines, I would still expect it to be able to poll many hundreds without issue.


  • Hi Ramhuzaini,

    I have an installation running the last 2 years 24/7 without any problems.
    Ca. 200 datapoints via Modbus TCP, 10 sec. update period, 15 dashboards with charts etc.


  • There are multiple embedded computers to choose other than Rpi. Nothing against Rpi, I use them quite a bit, but for Mango I would use a minimum of 2GB memory and then run the board headless with no Xorg GUI. I have chosen a board with 4GB of memory and it was a little over $50 US. However it did take 3-4 weeks to ship. It's the Pine Rock64 with 4GB. I am not using emmc yet, but that would be the next step for me. I only have about 10 points right now, but the custom displays are performing well.

    I also tested on a Solid Run embedded computer with 2GB and headless with no Xorg GUI and it worked well also. In all cases, including Rpi, you will need to restrict the memory for the JVM. Check the forum here at Mango, you will find the way to do it.


  • Hi everyone,

    Thank you for all the advice. The information is very helpful.
