The Manager Nodes page displays a list of all active Manager nodes. Double-click on a Manager node in the list to display its Properties window:

  • Hostname: The hostname of the Deep Security Manager host computer.
  • Description: A description of the Manager node.
  • Performance Profile: A Deep Security Manager's performance can be affected by several factors including number of CPUs, available bandwidth, and database responsiveness. The Manager's default performance settings are designed to be suited for most installation environments. However, if you experience performance issues your support provider may suggest that you change the Performance Profile assigned to one or more of your Deep Security Manager nodes. (You should not change these settings without first consulting your support provider.)
    The "Simultaneous Endpoint Disk and Network Jobs" referred to in the tables below include Anti-Malware Scans, Integrity Monitoring Scans, Reconnaissance Scans, Sending Policy updates to computers, and distributing Security Updates.
    • Aggressive: This Performance Profile is optimized for installations where the Deep Security Manager is installed on a dedicated server. The following table gives an indication of how some common concurrent operations are distributed per Manager node using the Aggressive Performance Profile:
