What is the recommended maximum number of Symantec Endpoint Protection Managers (SEPM) to deploy in a single Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) site?


For the best performance and stability, implement no more than 5 managers per SEP site. Adding more than the recommended maximum number of managers to a site causes database resource contention and will negatively impact the performance of the SEPM database.

Deploying more than 5 managers in a single SEPM site can cause the following:

  • Slow console log in
  • Slow Client Operational State (OpState) and log processing
  • Slow performance during replication, and possible replication time outs.
  • Scheduled tasks failing to run
