1Based on typical network environments using average event and flow aggregation. Depending on aggregation settings, collection type mix, overall SIEM activity, and related activities, the EPS levels for any given appliance, within an environment, may be lower.
2Usable event and flow data storage capacity will vary by customer event types, event rates, software version, and other factors.
3Minimum 50K IOPS for SSD; additional storage should be a minimum of 100 IOPS.
4IPMI: Please note that all McAfee SIEM appliances, except DAS-50 and DAS-100, have IPMI adapters; for ERC HA, IPMI is used for the HA configuration.
