Resources Monitored should be interpreted as XX Virtual Machines and XX Fibre Channel Switches and XX Disk/LUNs before adding additional proxy agents. See Sample deployment.

If you are running VMware VMotion, Storage VMotion or anything that can cause ESX host to dynamically switch to another ESX server, be aware of how VMware distributes the load dynamically from one ESX server to another. You should allow for additional room for the switch over. For example, if you are currently running 300 virtual machines on one proxy agent and a switchover occurs, this could allow monitoring of 300 plus virtual machines on your SRM Profiler proxy agent.

SolarWinds recommends that you have no more than 500 Disk/LUNs PER SMI-S Provider. The SRM Profiler proxy agent works directly with the SMI-S Provider. For more information on SMI-S Providers, see SMI-S and for more information on the architecture behind monitoring SAN Arrays and SMI-S Providers see Architecture.
