Enterprise Recon 2.6.1
This page lists the system requirements for:
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|
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.
Supported Operating Systems
|Environment (Target Category)||Operating System|
|Microsoft Windows Desktop
(Desktop / Workstation)
|Microsoft Windows Server
Looking for a different Linux distribution?
To run a Node Agent, you need a kernel version of 2.6 and above. To view your kernel’s version, run uname -r in the terminal.
To scan a UNIX Target that is not supported by a UNIX agent (e.g. FreeBSD 10 or HP-UX 11.31+), perform a Remote Access via SSH scan on the Target instead.
(Desktop / Workstation)
For macOS Catalina 10.15 and above, selecting "All local files" when scanning macOS Targets may cause the same data to be scanned twice. See Exclude the Read-only System Volume from Scans for macOS Targets for more information.
To scan a macOS Target that is not supported by the macOS Agent, perform an Agentless Scan or Remote Access via SSH scan on the Target instead.
Microsoft Windows Operating Systems
Ground Labs supports and tests ER2 for all Windows versions supported by Microsoft.
Prior versions of Windows may continue to work as expected. However, Ground Labs cannot guarantee support for these versions indefinitely.
Linux Operating Systems
Ground Labs supports and tests ER2 for all Linux distributions listed under Supported Operating Systems. However, other Linux distributions that are not indicated may work as expected.
macOS Operating Systems
Ground Labs supports and tests ER2 for all macOS versions listed under Supported Operating Systems. However, other macOS versions that are not indicated may work as expected.
To access the Web Console, you must have:
- A compatible browser:
To access the Enterprise Recon Web Console, use only browser versions that are supported by the respective developers.
- A minimum screen height of 720 pixels. Recommended screen height is 1080 pixels.
File Permissions for Scans
Agents must have read access to scan Targets, and write access to remediate matches.
