Enterprise Recon 2.7.0

System Requirements

This page lists the system requirements for:

Master Server

CPU Architecture

The Master Server requires a 64-bit (x86_64) CPU.

Memory and Disk Space

The memory (RAM) and disk space requirements for your Enterprise Recon Master Server is dependent on several factors, including (but not limited to):

  • The number of Targets that must be scanned,
  • The number of concurrently running scans,
  • The amount of data scanned,
  • The number of match locations in each Target,
  • The complexity of data residing in each Target,
  • The level of activity in the Web Console, and
  • The number of users concurrently connected to the Web Console.

The following table shows the estimated requirements for deploying a Master Server (in either of its three subscription license types) that supports a given number of Targets and match locations per Target:

Targets Match Locations (per Target) Memory Disk Space
10 100,000 8 GB 40 GB
50 100,000 8 GB 40 GB
100 100,000 12 GB 40 GB
200 100,000 12 GB 40 GB
500 100,000 12 GB 65 GB
1000 100,000 16 GB 130 GB
2000 100,000 16 GB 220 GB
10 1,000,000 16 GB 40 GB
50 1,000,000 24 GB 65 GB
100 1,000,000 32 GB 130 GB
200 1,000,000 36 GB 240 GB
500 1,000,000 36 GB 580 GB
1000 1,000,000 36 GB 1.2 TB
2000 1,000,000 36 GB 2.3 TB

Node Agent

The Node Agent is designed to run with minimal impact on its host system. Its main role is to deliver and load the scanning engine and send scan results to the Master Server through an encrypted TCP connection.

Minimum System Requirements

  • Memory: 4 MB.
  • Free Disk Space: 16 MB.
