    Q: What is the expected network impact when running the MAP Toolkit?

    A: When running inventory, MAP transfers an estimated 512 KB to 1 MB of data per machine inventoried over the network. The main source of the variance is due to the number of items in the MSI database per machine (how many applications installed, how many patches, and so on).

    When running performance metrics collection, the amount of data collected is about 1 MB per machine monitored every 5 minutes. Note that an inventory of each machine targeted for performance metrics collection will be performed if that machine has not been previously inventoried in the database being used by MAP.
