As with almost everything - that depends. Basically, the number of
nodes that can managed is dependent on the horsepower and load of the
machine that the nexxus is running on, and the mix of machines that
are being managed. EMP-based machines like VA's 22XX and 45XX servers
require more resources on the nexxus server than machines like the
VA 1120/1220/1000. You should be able to handle 12 nodes with a
typical server running the nexxus. If the nexxus server is expected
to provide a lot of additional services, it will need additional
You can run multiple nexxus's under VACM, in order to scale up to
support additional nodes. For example, you might want a nexxus per
rack full of 1U servers, and maybe share a nexxus among a couple of
racks of 4U's. There is no hard-and-fast formula.
