Machine specifications

The system resources required for machines running Burp Suite Enterprise Edition is highly dependent on a variety of factors, including the nature and extent of the applications being scanned, the number of issues that are reported, and the number of active users of the web UI and APIs. As a result, the specifications in this section are general recommendations that should provide satisfactory performance for most users. When provisioning machines, please be aware that the specifications might need to change later depending on your actual usage.

All machines on which Burp Suite Enterprise Edition components are installed must have a 64-bit architecture.

Please note the following points regarding free disk space requirements:

Enterprise server machine

For the base installation, the machine on which the Enterprise server and web server are installed must have:

If you also want to use this machine as an agent machine, it must also have the following for each agent that you want to assign to it:

If you want to use the bundled database, you also need to allow space for the data that it accumulates. For more information about how much space is required, please refer to Database.

External agent machines

If you want to deploy external agent machines, each one must have:

In addition, the machine must have the following for each agent that you want to assign to it:


These requirements mean that an agent machine on which you want 2 agents to run would need:

Database and storage space

The amount of data that might be accumulated by Burp Suite Enterprise Edition depends on a variety of factors, in particular the number of scans that you perform and how many issues they find.
