This document provides information about FortiSOAR MEA management extension application version 7.0.0 r1.
From FortiAnalyzer version 7.0.0, there is a capping of 50% on RAM and CPU for MEAs. This means if FortiAnalyzer has 8 CPUs and 16 GB RAM, then only 4 CPUs and 8 GB RAM will be available to MEAs. Note that this 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 FortiAnalyzer with sufficient resources to meet the minimum (default) FortiSOAR MEA configuration of 4 CPU cores and 8 GB RAM, which would mean that FortiAnalyzer should be deployed with a minimum of 8 CPUs and 16 GB RAM. However, to use FortiSOAR MEA at a production volume, you should provide the standard configuration of 8 CPUs and 32 GB RAM and depending on the number of running applications, the FortiAnalyzer resources should be increased. For example, if you are running only the FortiSOAR MEA at a production volume, i.e., at the standard configuration of 8 CPUs and 32 GB RAM on FortiAnalyzer, then ensure that the FortiAnalyzer has a minimum configuration of 16 CPUs and 64 GB RAM.
