This document provides information about FortiSOAR MEA (management extension application) version 7.2.0 r1.
- FortiSOAR MEA is supported on FortiManager models 3000F series and above.
FortiSOAR MEA is supported on FortiManager VM. The minimum system requirements for FortiSOAR MEA are 4 CPUs and 8 GB RAM, and the recommended system requirements for production are 8 CPUs and 32 GB RAM.
From FortiManager version 7.0.0, there is a capping of 50% on RAM and CPU for MEAs. This means if FortiManager has 8 CPUs and 16 GB RAM, then only 4 CPUs and 8 GB RAM will be available to MEAs. Note that these 4 CPUs and 8 GB RAM will be used for all the MEAs, and not just for the FortiSOAR MEA. Therefore, users need to ensure that they provision FortiManager with sufficient resources to meet the minimum (default) configuration of 4 CPU cores and 8 GB RAM, which would mean that should be deployed FortiManager with a minimum of 8 CPUs and 16 GB RAM.
However, to use FortiSOAR MEA at the production volume, it is recommended to provide the standard configuration of 8 CPUs and 32 GB RAM, and depending on the number of running applications, you must increase the resources on FortiManager.
For example, if you are running only FortiSOAR MEA at a production volume, i.e., at the standard configuration of 8 CPUs and 32 GB RAM on FortiManager, then ensure that FortiManager has a minimum configuration of 16 CPUs and 64 GB RAM.
FortiSOAR MEA must be licensed appropriately for use in production.
Note: By default, FortiSOAR MEA includes a Trial (Extension) License. The trial mode is limited by 2 users that can use FortiSOAR MEA for a maximum of 300 actions a day.
