      Question: How many host can be added to single patrol agent.

      Answer : There is no limitation on a basis of number of host can be added on single patrol agent. Its about how many object monitoring load you can put on that agent.

      e.g, in one scenario if each iSeries host configured for small number of total objects then we can add more host in compare with another scenario in which each host configured for large number of object monitoring.
