Hello, I don't think you are going to have an issue. We have a little over 20,000 Sensors monitoring spread 83 WAN Sites that are using Remote Probes. Some of the Remote Probes have about 1,000 sensors (for the most part we have not had allot of issues). The larger the remote probe more bandwidth it will consume.
