Foglight for DB2 (Cartridge) 5.9.4.20 - Hardware Sizing Guide

Number of Foglight for DB2 LUW Agents Per Agent Manager

The number of agents that can be hosted on an Agent Manager depends on the size of the environment and the amount of memory allocated on an Agent Manager. Instances, databases, and members each count toward the number of agents. For example, one instance with two databases and two members counts as five agents (1+2+2=5). If you require more agents than can be supported by one Agent Manager, add additional Agent Managers.

Number of Files Opened on the Agent Manager Server

For your reference, the following table states the number of files that are open while monitoring one DB2 instance. The numbers vary based on the operating systems used to host the Agent Manager and to host the DB2 instance. The last column shows how many files are opened when agents are added to monitor additional DB2 instances.
