Server Scaling Recommendations

Endpoint Application Control server requirements depend on the sum of user counts on managed endpoints in your environment.

  • Manage up to 20,000 users using a single Endpoint Application Control server.

  • Manage more than 20,000 users using additional servers.

Note:
  • Trend Micro recommends using 1.7 GHz Intel Core i3 at minimum.

  • Add 3.5 GB disk space for every addition of 100 managed users and endpoints.

To get the sum of user counts on managed endpoints, go to Dashboard > Summary and see the Managed Users and Endpoints field from the Server Summary widget. To add the widget, see Configuring.

To customize the interval for endpoint log collection, see Policy Logging.

To customize the interval for endpoint policy updates, see Policy Deployment.
