Maximum Number of Devices in RME 3.3

Please could anyone tell me the maximum number of devices that can be managed using RME 3.3 (CiscoWorks2000 RWAN) on a Win NT platform? This is purely for inventory purposes and so I do not require the other functions such as software management.

Thanks in advance

Re: Maximum Number of Devices in RME 3.3

There is no fixed number of devices, because number of devices is a vague way to measure system resource use.

The RME docs *recommend* 5000 devices max, and for some features, less, see the RME online docs:

These are recommendations, and your system performance will depend on the size of the server you plan to use. See the whitepaper on Ciscoworks in Large Scale Environments

That will give you a lot of info on the factors that affect RME scaling. You should have a dedicated server for max devices, and you MUST follow the recommendations in the whitepaper for creating smaller views, minimizing syslog traffic, disabling availability monitoring, etc.
