Review the requirements before you install and use Asset.
In addition to a license for the Asset product module, make sure that your environment also meets the following requirements.
|Tanium Content||(Optional) Asset includes all of the content it needs for base functionality. You can import additional content or sensors into Asset after installation.|
|Tanium Client||6.0.314.1540 or later recommended|
|Tanium Connect||(Optional) To create connections with Asset reports as a data source, use Connect 4.3 or later.|
Asset runs as two services that are installed on the Tanium Module Server: the Tanium Asset service and the Tanium Asset PostgreSQL service.
Asset requires disk storage capacity necessary to support the number of endpoints in your environment. For planning purposes, use 100 MB per 1000 endpoints, for example:
- 5,000 endpoints: 500 MB
- 50,000 endpoints: 5 GB
- 100,000 endpoints: 10 GB
- 250,000 endpoints: 25 GB
- 500,000 endpoints: consult your Technical Account Manager
Usage might vary significantly based on the following variables: the number of endpoints, the number of applications, the number of users, and most importantly the attributes that you add on the Inventory Management > Attributes page. These suggested sizes are considered a good estimate for most environments.
(Optional) For the ServiceNow CMDB connector, the Jakarta release or later is required.
Specific ports and processes are needed to run Asset.
The following ports are required for Asset communication.
|Module Server||443||Outbound||Access to your company's ServiceNow instance|
If security software is deployed in the environment to monitor and block unknown URLS, your security administrator might need to add the following URLs to the whitelist.
- ServiceNow instance (yourcompany.service-now.com)
