ZENworks 10 Configuration Management Scalability Rules of Thumb
While the ZCM documentation's design and scalability guidelines are still being written, I thought I'd post something very brief - that might be searchable - on this topic.
From the First Look training, the recommendations are:
- 10,000 workstations maximum per zone and multiple servers to cover that load
- typically around 1500-2000 maximum workstations per server
- around 500 concurrent workstations per server
