Sizing the Presentation Server for Infrastructure Management data collection

This topic provides sizing summaries for Infrastructure Management environments that incorporate data collection for the Presentation Server.

It is important to estimate the size of your deployment correctly because the steps you follow and the design elements vary depending on the size of the deployment. Use the following sizing and scaling recommendations to prevent oversizing or undersizing your deployment.

The values provided represent the maximum values recommended for each environment type. The number of components connected to the Presentation Server can vary depending on the deployment type and do not affect these values.
