There are many variables that influence how you set up an agent, such as the hardware you have, the amount of traffic you expect, and the type of traffic you want to monitor. There are two paths for installing the agent.

  1. Install all the agent services on the same physical instance. This is the easiest option but requires more serious hardware.

  2. Install services on separate instances. Useful when either Zeek or Suricata is not needed, or when the available hardware is below the above hardware specifications for a shared instance.
