Netskope Help

System Requirements

This section provides recommendations and guidance for selecting the server/VM/Instance where Netskope Cloud Exchange is going to be installed.

Minimum System Requirements
  • 4 GB of Memory

  • 2 CPU Core

  • 20 GB of Storage

  • Ubuntu 18.04 or CentOS 8 (the only two Netskope has qualified)

  • Docker

Sizing the System Based on Anticipated Usage

Factors to consider:

  • Total number of configured plugin sources.

  • Total number of Indicators expected to be stored in the database. This factor defines the storage requirements.

  • Netskope Cloud Exchange has a worker-based scheduling mechanism to cater to the data pull/push for multiple data sources. The number of workers determines how many data sources will be actively fetching data/sharing data concurrently. The total number of worker processes should be equal to the number of cores. If the expectation is to fetch data frequently with multiple data sources, consider increasing the number of cores.

The table below provides recommendations for standard deployments:
