Orion Platform and the meaning of "unlimited" with only 1 Main Polling Engine

We have the Solarwinds Platform installed at our site and currently we only use 1 polling engine.

We are currently monitoring only 2000 elements (1135 interfaces, 261 node, 639 volumes.

When i look at our "License Details" in the Web Console, it shows "unlimited" for many of the categories.

Understanding that a polling engine scales to about 12K elements, how are the unlimited Categories relevant to us?  What does that afford us?

Thank you,

  • Adam is on point here, the Unlimited is meaning they license won't stop you from monitoring however the limitations of what the software/hardware combined can. However as he pointed out this is changable by adjusting the polling intervals. There are other licenses that would stop you hard at 500 or 2k elements for example no matter how many polling engines you deploy.
