average number of databases for a standard Guardium Collector

  • 1.  average number of databases for a standard Guardium Collector

    Hi Team, A customer is asking for an approximate average number of databases that a standard Guardium Collector supports for a quick reference instead using SASC to size all environment again every time. I readed on a RedBook to consider a ratio of ten (10) database servers per collector appliance as a good starting point but doesn't mention anything about that 10 databases size (cores). So I draw this estimate based on databases servers cores number to exemplify.
    Based on your experience, what do you think? Is it a good estimate to show?

    We average eight database servers per collector but have one collector with one busy database and another collector with 26 databases. We average 61 cores per collector but have one collector with 4 cores and another collector with 189 cores. It all depends on how busy the database servers are.
