Repositories

Repositories are databases within Tenable.sc Director that contain vulnerability data. You can share repositories with users and organizations based on admin-defined assets. Repositories provide scalable and configurable data storage. Optionally, you can share repository data between multiple Tenable.scs.

Note: The maximum repository size is 64 GB. For best performance, Tenable recommends splitting repositories larger than 32 GB (greater than 50% capacity).

When adding an external repository, you access a local repository from another Tenable.sc. Remote repositories allow you to share repository data from one Tenable.sc deployment to your primary Tenable.sc deployment via an SSH session.

External repository data is static and used solely for reporting purposes. For more information, see External Repositories.

For more information, see Add a Repository and Manage Repositories. For information about Tenable.sc Director repository data encryption, see Encryption Strength.

Tip: If you need to remove data from a repository (for example, to remove retired asset data or to resolve a license issue), see the knowledge base article.
