When you're trying to figure out questions of scaling in Ops Center, it's important to be able to tell exactly how much load the different parts of the infrastructure are handling. In Ops Center, the relevant number is the access point count. An access point is a connection between a Proxy Controller and a managed asset. We don't just count the number of assets directly because, if different parts of an asset are managed by different Proxy Controllers, that puts more load on the system.
There's a tool in the OCDoctor's toolbox directory that lets you count the access points in your environment. The AssetCount.sh script gives you the total number of access points managed by the Enterprise Controller, and gives additional information depending on which option you use:
- The standard option shows the number of access points for each Proxy Controller - both the total and a detailed breakdown by asset category.
- The machine option gives a list of the access points on each Proxy Controller in machine-readable format.
- The agent option shows, for each Proxy Controller, how many assets are agent-managed, how many are agentless, and how many are SPs.
