Before beginning installation, please be sure to have a host system with the following resources available:
The following hardware recommendations are to be used as a general guide. Enterprise networks can vary in performance, capacity, protocols, and overall activity. Resource requirements to consider for deployments include raw network speed, the size of the network being monitored, and the configuration of the application. Processors, memory, and network cards will be heavily based on the former. Disk space requirements will vary depending on usage based on the amount and length of time data is stored on the system.
|Hosts Managed||CPU Cores||Memory||Disk Space|
|512 active IPs||4@2GHz cores||8 GB RAM||30 GB|
|2,500 active IPs||6@2GHz cores||12 GB RAM||60 GB|
|10,000 active IPs||8@3GHz cores||16 GB RAM||250 GB|
|25,000 active IPs||16@3GHz cores||32 GB RAM||1 TB|
|100,000 active IPs||32@3GHz cores||64 GB RAM||2 TB|
Along with the IP address, the following values must be configured:
- The network subnet mask
- The IP address of the Default Gateway
- The IP addresses of the DNS servers
- The local network must be configured to allow outbound HTTPS (port 443) access to the Internet, so the Platform can download the updates and vulnerability database.
- The IP addresses for the hosts to be scanned must be accessible to the Platform. The Platform must be able to resolve external DNS for the hostnames to be scanned.
Check that the appliance has access to
*.mageni.net to download the OS updates and the vulnerability database.
