McAfee ENS (specifically OAS) on RHEL 7x

Jump to solution

We are in the process of deploying McAfee ENS to our Linux servers and two questions have come back to us from the server engineers:

1) The memory hungry nature of OAS and whether there is anyway to limit the amount of memory that is utilised by OAS

2) Whether RHEL support is compromised due to ENS being implemented on the servers (OAS would first need to be stopped and the issue reproduced prior to support being provided by RHEL)..

We're running Agent version 5.6.3.157 and ENS version 10.6.8.115).

Your input on these items is appreciated.,

1) The memory hungry nature of OAS and whether there is anyway to limit the amount of memory that is utilized by OAS

No, we can not limit the Memory utilized by OAS, it depends on the i/o operations performed on server.

  2) Whether RHEL support is compromised due to ENS being implemented on the servers (OAS would first need to be stopped and the issue reproduced prior to support being provided by RHEL)..

No, RHEL support is not compromised ,Usually suspect  on AV for any performance issues.
