Sizing Azure ATP Sensor vs ATA Lightweight Gateway

Senior Member

Hello everyone,

 

we are implementing Azure ATP on many customers and we're seeing a common pattern on which we have some doubts: by running the Sizing Tool (we downloaded the latest version here https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/Azure-Advanced-Threat-a11343c4), two Excel sheets are created, one for the recommended resources for ATP and one for ATA.

In every environment we ran the tool (at least three big enterprise environments) we saw that ATA demands way less resources than ATP. From the documentation and other users' experiences online, we understood that ATP Sensor should demand less resources than the ATA Lightweight Gateway, so how is it possible to have such results?

 

Here some examples with the same servers:

 

ATA

Server1Yes
Server2Yes
Server3Yes
Server4 Yes, but additional resources required: +1GB
Server5 Yes
Server6Yes
Server7Yes
Server8Yes
Server9Yes

 

ATP

Server1Yes, but additional resources required: +1GB
Server2Yes
Server3Yes
Server4 Yes, but additional resources required: +4GB
Server5 Yes
Server6Yes, but additional resources required: +1GB
Server7Yes, but additional resources required: +1GB
Server8Yes, but additional resources required: +1GB
Server9Yes, but additional resources required: +1GB

 

Thank you very much.

Best Regards

Hi @Matteo-B

 

For low traffic domain controllers, the Sensor will require more resources than the ATA Lightweight Gateway. 

 

I would try the sensor on the servers that the tool is saying they need an additional 1GB of memory. The majority of the time the Sensor will be able to handle the load just fine.
