Should you have any questions or comments, do not hesitate to reply to this post or send me e-mail directly.
BETTER SCALABILITY AND PERFORMANCE
- One of the most important enhancements this release contains is support for additional polling engines (APE). By deploying APEs one NCM installation can typically handle about 30,000 devices. If you already have APEs for other SolarWinds products (e.g. NPM), you can leverage them for NCM, too.
- Not only scalability but also performance has been improved in this version; especially customers with large installations should notice better performance of inventory and Web UI. Example: if you click on a drill-down chart on the NCM Summary page, you can see that the details are now organized in a table that supports paging, which performs well with long lists of devices.
