Agent Impact on Endpoints - Tanium Agent FAQs - Tanium Tech Talks #88

May 8, 2024

Often we get the question, “What is the impact of the Tanium agent on the endpoint?” Today we’re going to unpack that answer as part of a series on optimizing the Tanium agent for your environment. In this series we’re going to explore expectations for endpoint agent load, look at agent tuning, talk about proper anti-virus exclusions, what to consider for virtual infrastructure, and more. Today we’re going to focus on the baseline load of the Tanium agent on your endpoints: disk, memory, CPU, network. Also pick up bonus Windows performance tips from an industry veteran in this behind-the-scenes interview with a Tanium Principal Escalation Engineer.

  • Understand memory, CPU, disk, and network performance of the agent
  • Consolidate agents with Tanium to free up end user resources
  • Tanium Client 7.6 improves performance
  • Use Performance and Tanium Client Management to see agent health
  • Use the core content to collect ETL files for support
