Max number of rules   27 January 2011, 01:37

Anyone have a idea of what the max number of rules is before performance of the server starts to be affected? I currently have 700 rules and wondering if that may be too many for my server. My server is a dual proc windows 2003 with 4gb of ram...I am not seeing the memory nor the procs being overused, but wanted to see if what I have in in line..

I don't know a idea about the max number of rules... I have many rules too (954)

My system: Windows 2003 Server with 3GB RAM (Processor Intel Core 2 Duo)

I remember that Andrew once said 1500 rules to be the maximum. There should be a post around here somewhere.

Cheers.

Thanks for the replies. I will run it up to around 800 and see how it goes.
