    How many Proxy Agents would be allowed to install on the STM?

    gerardolan64

      Hi,Everybody

       

      According to the recommendation that the Administration Guide describes the Storage Manager, regarding the monitoring of VMs on not exceed 300 VMs per 64bits Storage Manager Proxy Agent... hoy many agents would be allowed? Exist any limitation on number of Proxy Agents to install?

       

      Thanks in advanced

          Hi gerardolan64,

           

          What's the size of the environment you are trying to monitor in terms of:

          • SAN/NAS disks
          • Physical servers
          • Virtual servers

           

          The short answer is that a single STM server is limited to 500 server agents whether they are being used as proxy agents or not. However, from the way you've phrased the question, if you're trying to monitor just a virtual environment, I would highly recommend Virtualization Manager as it is much more scalable when collecting from a virtual environment and supports both VMware and Hyper-V.
