Is 64-bit supported by Security Management?

  • R80.10 Security Management Server processes run in 64-bit when the OS is configured in this way.

  • Endpoint Security Management Server E80.40 and up can run natively as 64-bit process, providing high capacity. See sk82621.

  • Multi-Domain Management Server running on a 64-bit system will benefit from the additional memory as long as the number of Domains is large enough.

    Note
    : maximum physical memory supported for Open Servers running Multi-Domain Management Server is 128 GB for versions R80 and below, and 512 GB for versions R80.10 and above.
    If the machine was installed with less than 192G and the other RAM was added later, rebooting the system run the script: /bin/memory_post_upgrade.sh
    This script will update the grub.conf file with the correct boot command to load with the additional memory.

 

Also see sk112832 - 32-Bit User Mode Process on 64-Bit Gaia OS can allocate only up to 4 GB of memory

 

My appliance is loading into 64-bit mode by default. Can I move to 32-bit mode?

Yes, use the Clish command 'set edition 32-bit' to change your edition.

 

I upgraded my appliance to Gaia OS, but it is still running 32-bit. What am I doing wrong?

The default edition after an upgrade is 32-bit. You can change the edition using the Clish command 'set edition'.

 

What is the default Gaia OS kernel configuration for R80.10? 

  • Security Gateway 2016 series:
    • Clean install- 64bit
    • Upgrade- previous setting is preserved
