Small510050 thousand8.4 million5.4 million1 million
Medium1010001 million168 million108 million20 million
Large301000030 million5 billion3 billion600 million


The calculation for data points collection is as given below:

attributes * instances (assumed 5 instances on avg) * devices * polling cycle (3 mins = 20 points)


For a large environment: 30 * 5 * 10000 * 20 = 30M

    I found Linux listed under System Requirements but only Windows is listed here. Are the requirements different for the Linux platform?

      These were tested on Windows. However, the R&D team is working on PSR for this product. We will update this page once their testing is done.

      Thank you

    TrueSight Smart Reporting and TrueSight Operations Management Reporting share the same database instance, with separate schema -> Can you share the schema specifications for Smart reporting ?

      I have taken this request as a Request for Enhancement. I will update the document once I get the required information.
