The software operates under Windows XP/2003/Vista/2008/7/8.1/2012.
The program monitors devices using 30+ built-in monitoring checks which use common networking protocols including ICMP, TCP, ARP, SNMP, and WMI. An average modern PC can monitor up to 1000-2000 sensors using the ICMP, TCP, or ARP protocols.
If you want to monitor managed switches using SNMP, an average PC or server can handle several hundreds of sensors. 1000+ sensors will require more RAM and more cores in CPU. Some of our customers monitor up to 8000 switches on the 24-core server with 16 GB RAM and SSD drives using SNMP. Big number of sensors and short polling period imply intensive recording of the statistics data to your disks (and increased RAM consumption). Fast SSDs will perform better than slow HDDs.
The WMI monitoring utilizes the most of CPU load and 500-1000 checks can cause issues. For testing the performance issues in your specific environment, we recommend you to download and try our fully functional free 30-day trial version.
The program is priced by the number of devices doing the monitoring, not the number of devices being monitored. Thus, if you are monitoring 100 devices from one computer you only need the Single Computer License.
