Hi Tomasz,
Are you asking the maximum number of appliances? One Extreme Management Center server currently supports up to six appliances.

Hi,

Ok, as many EAC appliances as one'd like (w.r.t. EMC management limit). Does this also apply to Application Analytics appliances? I couldn't spot this in the docs.

Regards,
Tomasz

The current maximum is 6 Analytics appliances, and 3M flows total for the total Extreme Management Center (Netsight) system.

Ok, thank you. I might have introduced too much noise here maybe because of my English. So I can tell the VAR he can just deploy another virtual appliance with no additional cost.

Many thanks,
Tomasz

Correct, on both appliances, they are limited by the licenses generally applied to the EMC or Netsight Server, not the appliances themselves.
There are some exceptions, but generally the model follows this. They should be using the EMC server license, and the EMC server should have end station and flow count licenses applied to them.

The current limit for the Analytics engines is six. There has not been a lot of requests for more appliances. There is also a limit to the maximum number of flows a EMC server can handle. That is 3M flows.
