There is an internal limitatoin to how much a single polling engine can poll. So if you have really good hardware, you might run in to a situation were the software is the limit and not the hardware it is running on.
For more details about the polling calculation, I suggest starting with the following blog post.
Hi Mav, the article is a very helpful start, thank you.
I'm left wondering how a 'Maximum polling load for NPM jobs' of 2600 is determined? And whether 'Job Weights' for different polling types are actual units of work? In essence is MSMQ the bottleneck or does some some other throttle exist?
Can anyone at Solarwinds enlighten us?
I would also like to know the details of this. We just upgraded the server and the max polling load is the same so it seems to be completely independent of the server resources available to it. Any one from Solarwinds able to add any additional details to this?
