Sizing guidelines for ActiveGate


Hi Guys,

How do we define sizing of ActiveGate in a SAAS & Managed deployment respectively :

SAAS Deployment :

We can only have Environment ActiveGate in SAAS Deployment.

So to define the number of ActiveGate needed in a SAAS deployment , how much load can a single Activegate support ? Is it scalable vertically as well as horizontally?

Managed Deployment :

As we will need to have both Activegates here : CLuster & Environment , i need to know scalability for both to define numbe of each type of ActiveGates needed for my deployment .

Looks like a duplicate to :

In general you can size AG vertically and horizontally. Usually it's good to have a dedicated AG for a certain monitoring e.g. VMWare or AWS, when they are large environments.

AG's can be added on the Fly, Its important to know what you want to do, Synthetics - Internal? External? Cloud computing data? Davis Integration? Mobile App integration? UFO integration? etc.
