Do the windows agents in 11.5 reduce the load on the poller?

Can you use the windows agents to reduce the load on a poller (and maybe defer having to buy an additional one)?

What component of SolarWinds do the windows agents connect to?

I don't think that's the case based on the capacities listed but that might depend on the number of elements per node. Given an average of 12 elements per node * 1,000 nodes you would be roughly at the same stated limits for either snmp/wmi or agents.

It does however look to be far more friendly on polled device bandwidth -

On the other hand I think the 0.25% cpu avg might be higher then snmp or wmi but might present substantially differing avg vs peak temporal values.

what's your avg element per node values?
