Number of remote probes possible




We have deployed a cluster probe on our main site. We are planning to deploy remote probes on branch sites all over the country. I would like to know how many remote probes can we deploy and what impact would it have on servers both in branch sites and in central site (cluster) ? We have an unlimited licence.

Thank you.

The number of remote probes isn't limited. The impact highly depends on the sensor types and the scanning interval. Please have a look here for more detailed information for larger installations.

Best regards
