KB-17704: What is the recommended ratio of adclient to domain controller?

Authentication Service ,  

18 July,19 at 06:31 AM

Applies to: All versions of Centrify Authentication Services


What would Centrify recommend on the ratio of Direct Control agent to AD domain controller? 


Centrify adclient to AD DC ratio has been suggested as 700:1 for old versions.

With recent performance enhancement, we would expect this to have almost doubled. It is suggested that 1000~1200:1 is attainable with the latest 18.11 release and later.

Please be noted this is an ROT estimate based on the performance tests in the lab. Mileage may vary - as this is affected by the number of AD users, number of AD groups and role assignments in the zones.
