Vee,

The scalability of a Profiler Appliance (P1000) is really based on the number of concurrent connections going through your firewalls. Because Profiler does a lot of trending, analytics and session analysis the number of concurrent connections are really the bottle neck.

A few notes:

  • A P1000 can support 6 million concurrent connections - so if your 18 units have fewer than this number of session a single appliance could support it.
  • If the number goes above 6 million the Profiler will still run, but will start sampling the data.
  • There are no physical or code limitations to the number of firewalls
  • Virtual Profiler is also available as an option - as a Firewall customer you can download and use the virtual profiler if you need additional performance vs. the appliance.

I hope that helps!

Dave
