Tanium as a Service automatically handles module installations and upgrades.
For information about configuring Performance for Tanium as a Service (TaaS), see Configuring Performance.
Use the Tanium Console Solutions page to install Performance and choose either automatic or manual configuration:
- Automatic configuration with default settings (Tanium Core Platform 7.4.2 or later only): Performance is installed with any required dependencies and other selected products. After installation, the Tanium Server automatically configures the recommended default settings. This option is the best practice for most deployments. For details about the automatic configuration for Performance, see Import Performance with default settings.
- Manual configuration with custom settings: After installing Performance, you must manually configure required settings. Select this option only if Performance requires settings that differ from the recommended default settings. For more information, see Import Performance with custom settings.
Use the Automatic configuration with default settings option.
- Read the release notes.
- Review the Performance requirements.
- If you are upgrading from a previous version, see Upgrade Performance.
- Assign the correct roles to users for Performance. Review the User role requirements.
- To import the Performance solution, you must be assigned the Administrator reserved role.
- To configure the Performance action group, you must be assigned the Administrator reserved role, Content Administrator reserved role, or a role that has the Write Action Group permission.
When you import Performance with automatic configuration, the following default settings are configured:
The following default settings are configured:
|Service account||The service account is set to the account that you used to import the module.
Configuring a unique service account for each Tanium solution is an extra security measure to consider in consultation with the security team of your organization. See Configure service account.
|Profiles||A profile is created with the default event rule configuration that targets All Computers.|
To import Performance and configure default settings, see Tanium Console User Guide: Import all modules and services. After the import, verify that the correct version is installed: see Verify Performance version.
To import Performance without automatically configuring default settings, be sure to clear the Apply All Tanium recommended configurations check box while performing the steps in Tanium Console User Guide: Import, re-import, or update specific solutions. After the import, verify that the correct version is installed: see Verify Performance version.
To configure the service account, see Configure service account.
To configure the Performance action group, see Add computer groups to the Performance action group.
To configure a profile, see Configure Profiles.
(Optional) To install and configure Direct Connect, see (Optional) Install and configure Direct Connect.
When you start the Performance workbench for the first time, the Tanium Server checks whether all the Tanium modules and shared services (solutions) that are required for Performance are installed at the required versions. The Performance workbench cannot load unless all required dependencies are installed. If you selected Tanium Recommended Installation when you imported Performance, the Tanium Server automatically imported all your licensed solutions at the same time. Otherwise, if you manually imported Performance and did not import all its dependencies, the Tanium Console displays a banner that lists the dependencies and the required versions. See Solution dependencies.
Perform the following steps if a banner indicates any Performance dependencies are not installed:
- Install the dependencies as described in Tanium Console User Guide: Import, re-import, or update specific solutions.
- From the Main menu, go to Modules > Performance to open the Performance Overview page and verify that the Console no longer displays a banner to list missing dependencies.
For the steps to upgrade Performance, see Tanium Console User Guide: Import, re-import, or update specific solutions. After the upgrade, verify that the correct version is installed: see Verify Performance version.
In Performance 1.3.0 and later, you can configure Retention Settings to specify the Database maximum size and Database maximum days. Profiles created in Performance 1.2.1 and earlier do not include this setting. After you upgrade to Performance 1.3.0 or later, you can add this setting to a profile that you created in an earlier version by editing the profile, specifying the Retention Settings, and saving the profile.
After you import or upgrade Performance, verify that the correct version is installed:
- Refresh your browser.
- From the Main menu, go to Modules > Performance to open the Performance Overview page.
- To display version information, click Info .
