Management extension applications

The following section describes supported models and minimum system requirements for management extension applications (MEA) in FortiAnalyzer 7.0.1.

Note

FortiAnalyzer uses port TCP/443 or TCP/4443 to connect to the Fortinet registry and download MEAs. Ensure that the port is also open on any upstream FortiGates. For more information about incoming and outgoing ports, see the FortiAnalyzer 7.0 Ports Guide.

Supported models for MEA

You can use any of the following FortiAnalyzer models as a host for management extension applications:

FortiAnalyzer

FAZ-3000F, FAZ-3000G, FAZ-3500E, FAZ-3500F, FAZ-3500G, FAZ-3700F, FAZ-3900E

FortiAnalyzer VM

FAZ_DOCKER, FAZ-VM64, FAZ-VM64-AWS, FAZ-VM64-Azure, FAZ-VM64-GCP, FAZ-VM64-HV (including Hyper-V 2016, 2019), FAZ-VM64-KVM, FAZ-VM64-OPC, FAZ-VM64-Xen (for both Citrix and Open Source Xen)

Minimum system requirements

By default FortiAnalyzer VMs use the following system resource settings:

  • 4 vCPU
  • 8 GB RAM
  • 500 GB disk space

Starting with FortiAnalyzer 7.0.0, RAM and CPU is capped at 50% for MEAs. (Use the config system docker command to view the setting.) If FortiAnalyzer has 8 CPUs and 16 GB RAM, then only 4 CPUs and 8 GB RAM are available to MEAs by default, and the 4 CPUs and 8 GB RAM are used for all enabled MEAs.

Some MEAs have minimum system requirements that require you to increase system resources. The following table identifies the minimum requirements for each MEA as well as the recommended system resources to function well in a production environment.

MEA minimum system requirements apply only to the individual MEA and do not take into consideration any system requirements for resource-sensitive FortiAnalyzer features or multiple, enabled MEAs.

Management Extension Application

Minimum system requirements

Recommended system resources for production*

FortiSOAR
  • 4 vCPU
  • 8 GB RAM
  • 500 GB disk storage
  • 16 vCPU
  • 64 GB RAM
  • No change for disk storage

*The numbers in the Recommended system resources for production column are a combination of the default system resource settings for FortiAnalyzer plus the minimum system requirements for the MEA.
