hi all,

 

we are trying to create APM cluster (v9.7.1) with 10 collectors that will accommodate as many agents as possible. Our plan is to have 800 agents per collector each sending at most 500 KB of live metrics per interval, giving in total 400 000 KB of live metrics per collector and 8000 agents per APM cluster. Is it possible to have this amount of agents (while still sticking with officially recommended 400 000 KB of live metrics per collector)? Any field experience with such a big deployments? I know standard recommendation is to keep at most 400 agents per collector. Please advise.

 

regards,
