Results of Administration Server performance testing

Results of Administration Server performance testing have allowed us to determine the maximum numbers of client devices with which Administration Server can be synchronized for specified time intervals. This information can be used to select the optimal scheme for deploying anti-virus protection on computer networks.

Devices with the following hardware configurations (see the tables below) were used for testing:

Administration Server supported creation of 500 virtual Administration Servers.

The synchronization interval was 15 minutes for every 10,000 managed devices (see the table below).
