When planning your installation and implementation of Audit and Control Management Server, make yourself familiar with various server limits. This table gives the specific ranges and limitations, including system and site limits, and folder and path requirements.

Server limits

Central Administrators

The total combined number of users and groups that can be Central Administrators within a single ACM Server system.

10

Monitored UNC folders per site

The number of "UNC" folders that can be configured within a site.

0

200

This limit will help avoid overloading the processors, in particular the network share file processor. The operating system will limit the amount of actively watched connections that can be instantiated from one machine to any given file server. Exceeding this limit is not recommended, so limiting the number of monitored folders per site will help avoid this situation.

UNC paths per processor alias

The number of "UNC" folders that can be assigned to any given file processor alias in a site.

0

40

File processor services that run on the ACM Server are associated with a specific file processor alias. This limits the number of UNC folders that any given file processor service can be assigned to monitor.

HTTP paths per site

The number of "HTTP" folders that can be configured within a site.

0

200

HTTP paths per file processor alias

The number of "UNC" folders that can be assigned to any given file processor alias in a site.

0

80

File processor services that run on the ACM Server are associated with a specific file processor alias. This limits the number of HTTP folders that any given file processor service can be assigned to monitor.

File Path Length

The length of the UNC path or HTTP path (combination of site URL, document library and folder path) that can be entered as the location to monitor in the folder properties page.

255

Maximum length allowable in the database is 255 characters. The maximum allowable by Excel in the Username field is 52 characters (Excel UI restriction). If multiple people edit a file, then ACM Server can record more than 1 username. So, the length could need to increase beyond 52 characters. If it goes beyond 255, an error is listed in the processing folder and the site Event Log.
