To estimate the number of Collectors required for your infrastructure, it is highly recommended to use the Veeam MP for VMware Sizing Calculator available as a part of the Veeam MP Resource Kit included in the Veeam MP ISO image. For more information on the Veeam MP for VMware Sizing Calculator, see the Veeam MP Resource Kit Guide.
Additional HA Considerations
To provide failover capability, in addition to the recommendation generated by the Sizing Calculator, you will need:
- One additional unloaded Inactive Collector (acting as warm standby)
- Sufficient headroom on existing Collectors to absorb the monitoring jobs of any failed Collector
