You may have only 1 data collector running at any time
However, endpoint monitoring is not constrained to one system only - in order to support large numbers or endpoints, specific topological networking situations multiple endpoint monitors can be run, with the following provisos:
- Each endpoint monitor must be run under a unique user of the Vyopta system - a service account should therefore be created for each instance.
- Each endpoint must be monitored by only 1 endpoint monitor. Access(monitoring) groups should therefore be created for each instance, and an endpoint must appear in on one of these groups
