An accurate analysis of the performance and sizing of the hardware systems that support Microsoft® Operations Manager (MOM) 2005 is critical to the successful implementation of MOM 2005. This technical paper shares some of the knowledge gained from the performance and sizing testing for MOM 2005, and is presented in various scenarios.
The test results presented in this paper do not represent nor are they meant to define an absolute system configuration for any number of managed computers. Rather, use the findings in this paper and the MOM 2005 Management Sizer as a starting point to help you to determine the appropriate performance and sizing considerations for MOM 2005 in your specific environment.
