We have a large number of sensors (15,000+) What is the best set-up?



We have a large number of sensors across a number of sites and we are experiencing performance issues.

Is it possible to spread the load across 2 servers? or should we just use a bigger server?

We are currently running a Windows 2003 64 bit server with 8GB

What kind of performance issues are you experiencing? I run (22,000+) sensors and have had to work through much of what you are probably experiencing.
