NSM max practical logs per sec
« on: March 03, 2010, 11:00:57 am »
I can't seem to find an answer to this.  What is the maximum number of logs that NSM can handle per sec, min , etc?

Thanks
Scott

Appendix B in the NSM Installer Guide has useful sizing requirements.  Here is a snip-it that talks about logging on the Dev Server:

Device Server
A faster CPU supports higher sustained logging rates, improving scalability on the
Device Server. A modern Intel or AMD CPU (2.4GHz) or an UltraSparc III (1.2 GHz)
can handle sustained log rates of at least 20,000 logs per second.
