Hello Paessler, Could you share with me some "Best practices" how to make High Availability cluster of PRTG, when we have more then 3,000 sensors and we plan more then 5,000 sensors. Your website (https://www.paessler.com/prtg/requirements) says, that cluster is not supported. Please, do you have another best practices, how to make HA?

Thank you verey much.

You basically need to scale horizontally then, i.e. have multiple core servers that monitor your environment (or parts of it). Please drop my colleagues at presales a mail, they'll gladly assist :)
