Enterprise Recon 2.3

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 amount of disk space and RAM that your Master Server requires depends on the number of Targets and concurrent scans that it must deal with. The amount of memory required by the Master Server is also impacted by the level of activity in the Web Console.

The following table shows the estimated requirements for a Master Server that supports a given number of Targets and concurrent scans based on a weekly scan with five logged in users:

Scans Running Number of Targets Disk (GB) Memory (GB)
2 50 40 8
5 100 40 8
10 200 48 8
50 500 64 8
100 500 64 8
100 1000 128 8
200 2000 192 12
500 3000 256 16

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.
