Hardware Recommendations

Endpoints should comply with all hardware requirements for the OS you are running. Consider all processes that run on the endpoints when determining hardware configuration. Only industry standard desktop, laptop, or notebook computers and server hardware platforms are supported. Mobile, tablet, embedded, or fixed-function devices require additional qualifications. Please contact VMware Carbon Black Support for additional information.

Requirements

Details

Additional Notes

Memory

The sensor typically uses 50-100 MB of virtual memory.

Other supported operating systems should have at least 1 GB of physical memory.

Disk Space

The sensor requires at least 200 MB of free disk space on the system volume; 500 MB is recommended.

Actual storage requirements depend on factors such as the number of files on the computer and the Carbon Black EDR configuration.

If Carbon Black EDR is installed to a location other than the system volume, 100 MB of free space must be available on the installation volume.

Supported Operating Systems and Sensors

These Carbon Black EDR macOS sensors are currently supported as Standard or Extended. Standard support includes maintenance releases and technical support. Extended provides technical support only.

For more information, see the Carbon Black EDR and Carbon Black App Control Product Support Policy and the Carbon Black Product Release Lifecycle Status.

All macOS sensors run on an x64 architecture.

The plus sign (+) indicates all subsequent versions including the version listed.
