A small deployment is one where the topology has 500 Routers, 1000 Switches, 2000 Hosts/VMs(vCenter + NSX), 2,500 VeloCloud edges, 2 Cisco ACI Controllers(30 switches per Controller), 50 VNFs(Clear Water), 10,000 Notifications and 10 traps per second.

Total Managed Interface and Ports: 18000

Note: 1: 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: 2: For Kafka deployment it is recommended to keep the retention period to 2 to 3 days to reduce the disk space growth.
