Load balancing for large installations can be achieved by offloading sensors to remote probes as far as I can tell.
Now let's say that I have a remote installation that I'd like to monitor and I need 500 sensors at that installation.
I can monitor those sensors directly from the local sensor at the core server, and that counts as using the CPU, RAM and other resources for 500 sensors on that server. If I instead set up a remote sensor at the remote installation and monitor the 500 sensors using that device, which is sending info back to the core, then is the core using only the resources required to monitor one sensor or 500?
If I then duplicate that setup across 500 locations, is the core server using up resources to monitor 500 sensors or 250000? (500 locations monitoring 500 sensors each)
I'm looking into monitoring a very large number of devices at many different locations.
