A medium deployment is one where the topology has 5000 Routers, 8000 Switches, 10000 Hosts/VMs(vCenter + NSX), 5,000 VeloCloud edges, 5 Cisco ACI Control Cluster(30 Switches per Control Cluster), 5000 VNFs(Clear Water), 50,000 Notifications and 30 traps per second.

Total Managed Interface and Ports: 150,000

A large deployment is one where the topology has 20,000 Routers, 30,000 Switches, 15000 Hosts/VMs(vCenter + NSX), 5,000 VeloCloud edges, 10 Cisco ACI Control Cluster(30 Switches per Control Cluster), 5000 VNFs(Clear Water), 100,000 Notifications and 50 traps per second.

Total Managed Interface and Ports: 540,000

Note: A Router has total 20 interfaces out of which 18 are managed interfaces.A Switch has total 60 ports & 1 interface out of 4 ports are managed and 1 interface is managed.A Host has total 2 managed interface.
Note: For Kafka deployment it is recommended to keep the retention period to 2 to 3 days to reduce the disk space growth.
