How many hosts on a single PMS

How many clients can I connect to a single Policy Manager Server? Is there any limit for that?

    Hello Ben,


    up to 3000 Client Security hosts

    then if you follow the minimum requirement you should be on the safe side.

    Traditional wisdom says:


    Up to 5000 endpoints for a Windows Server OS based F-Secure Policy Manager Server, if the hardware is strong enough, including LARGE amounts of free disk storage space.


    Up to 15k endpoints, possible even more when using a Linux OS based F-Secure Policy Manager Server (of course this setup also needs very strong HW).


    However, it is somewhat unlikely that 3k, 10k or 30k workstations would be lumped together in a single building or on a single LAN. When the very large customer is distributed across several sites, FSPM based central control is at some disadvantage, due to lack of support for management hierarchy. (It is not possible to define a king PMS, which manages vassal PMSes, which then manage minion PMSes.)
