This section provides sizing summaries for a BMC ProactiveNet environment that is integrated with BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management.

Provided values represent the maximum values recommended for the tested parameter.

Sizing chart for BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management

The following table can help you determine the number of required BMC ProactiveNet Central Servers, BMC ProactiveNet Child Servers, Data Collection Hosts, and BMC Server Automation Servers. The table also shows the maximum number of devices, monitor instances, and attributes for a proof of concept (POC), small, medium and large environment in BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management.
