Issue/Introduction

When looking to scale your Spectrum environment, you may need to know how many traps Spectrum can handle without affecting performance.

Resolution

Spectrum can properly handle about 200 traps per second sustained.

It can handle thousands in a sudden spike as long as the sustained amount remains lower.

The issue that would be ran into if this goes any higher would be that is all the SpectroSERVER would be doing.  The traps would get queued and Spectrum would only be processing traps, leaving the rest of what it does for later causing latencies, delays and other various performance problems.
