For SRM Profiler to reliably collect data from VMs, SolarWinds recommens that you do not exceed 300 VMs per 64-bit SRM Profiler proxy agents and 200 VMs per 32-bit SRM Profiler proxy agents. To accommodate failover situations, allow a margin of safety when calculating your VM per SRM Profiler proxy agent limits. If you are monitoring a cluster with more than 300 VMs, consider assigning SRM Profiler proxy agents to monitor specific hosts.
