A good number is between 50 and say 75. Citrix says 100. But it will
depend on the number of requests to the DataCollectors.

SO lets say you have 200 hundred servers and 10,000 users. Your users
only connect once or twice a day . Logon in the morning. Close their
session at lunch and logon in the afternoon. The 75 server per zone
would not be too bad. Very few requests to the DC.

BUT lets say its all published apps. And users close and open apps all
the time. Thus causing a DC request each time. Well about 50 per zone
would work well.

Its worked in my environments of comparable size.

Subject: [THIN] Designing a big XP farm



        Hello:

In a few days I will have to start evaluating the best zone design for a
huge Metaframe XP farm, 200 servers in a single location, hosting 150
apps
and servicing 10,000 users. A single zone is supossed to be too much
load
for the data collector as Citrix reports. Does anybody have any
background
to argue how many zones should be configured  and why ?

Thanks in advance.=20
