The total number of computers that can be monitored is dependent upon how many events are being generated by the individual servers. 

In testing, NetIQ Corporation found that the proxy agent can handle about 130 events per second.  This load was spread across five computers.  If you need to monitor more than five computers with a single proxy agent, do not exceed a total of 130 events per second.  Consider assigning the computers to a different proxy agent.
