A basic install requires one or more systems capable of running Docker or Podman (Sandfly is Dockerized) with these minimum requirements:

  • A server with a minimum 4GB RAM running Linux for smaller deployments and scaling up from there. This server runs the REST API and database.

  • A scanning node with a minimum 2GB of RAM running Linux. A node runs multiple containers for performance and redundancy so you can cover thousands of hosts very easily.

We also offer a simple, single host install where both server and node run on the same system. However, for higher security and production performance, we recommend you run each on their own VM.
