ControlUp Sizing Guidelines

This guideline should help organizations properly size Console/Monitor/Data Collector per Concurrent sessions.

 

RDSH based workloads

 

The sizing numbers below are based on networks where the majority of end users run on RDSH based servers (with or without 3rd party software such as Citrix XenApp or Horizon View). The main factor is the number of concurrent sessions being managed using ControlUp. Please note that when managing more than 2,000 concurrent user sessions disabling the process flat views in the real-time console is a mandatory requirement. In addition, configuring dedicated data collectors for Hypervisors and XenDesktop sites is always recommended, in large environments the data collector should run on a dedicated VM.

Note: Dedicated Data Collectors MUST be configured to ease up resources, each Hypervisor/XD Site should be configured with a dedicated data collector on a dedicated VM (not shared with the Monitor/Console/IOP).

VDI based workloads

 

The sizing numbers below are based on networks where the majority of end users run on VDI based endpoints (e.g. Windows 7 or Windows 10 VMs with or without 3rd party software such as Citrix XenDesktop or Horizon View). The main factor is the number of VDI endpoints being managed using ControlUp. Please note that when managing more than 500 VDI endpoints  disabling the process flat views in the real-time console is a mandatory requirement. In addition, configuring dedicated data collectors for Hypervisors and XenDesktop sites is always recommended, in large environments the data collector should run on a dedicated VM.

Note: Dedicated Data Collectors MUST be configured to ease up resources, each Hypervisor/XD Site should be configured with a dedicated data collector on a dedicated VM (not shared with the Monitor/Console/IOP).
