Topic last updated—November 2007
The topics in this section provide performance recommendations that are the result of testing scenarios based on data processing for a central site, with the maximum number of 200,000 supported clients in a Configuration Manager hierarchy, and 2 child primary sites, with the maximum number of 100,000 supported assigned clients each in a Configuration Manager site.
For more information about capacity planning for Configuration Manager site systems, see Configuration Manager Site Capacity Planning.
|This is not a complete listing of every feature and function implemented during performance testing but rather an example of general performance testing objectives. For more information about common Configuration Manager 2007 performance related questions and sample configurations, see the technical whitepaper at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=113136.|
- Assigned clients were divided between 2 child
primary sites with each supporting 100,000 assigned clients.
- 200 boundaries were defined to manage client
- Computer collections for these sites were
created ranging from 1,000 clients to 200,000 clients.
- Client hardware inventory, including asset
intelligence data, was collected (for both full and delta inventory
- Client software inventory was collected (both
for full and delta inventory report information).
- Active Directory discovery methods were used
both for computers and for users.
- The heartbeat discovery method was
- Software distribution performance was tested
using 100 distribution points with software distribution
advertisements targeting 2,000, 60,000, and 200,000 clients.
- Software metering was implemented using 1,000
software metering rules.
Before performance testing began, to obtain realistic performance metrics, the Configuration Manager site database was populated with a representative set of Configuration Manager objects.
For each primary site, supporting 100,000 clients, the database size was approximately 40 GB after the initial Configuration Manager object data was imported into the site database.
|Production Configuration Manager site databases can be expected to average approximately 3 MB for each client.|
