About the Control Center

You can use the Control Center to do the following tasks:

  • Start and stop servers

  • View logs and reports

  • Set configuration options

  • Consolidate statistics, report data, and logs

Symantec Message Filter is scalable from small sites of fewer than a hundred users to sites that serve tens of thousands of users. However, the Control Center can typically only manage sites with up to approximately 100,000 users. If your site is too large for the Control Center, you can run the product in a stand-alone configuration.

To help you decide whether your site is too big for the Control Center, consider the following factors:

  • The Quarantine can only accommodate up to 30,000 users.

  • Setting log levels too high can have a major impact if your site has more than 10,000 users. At the highest level (debug), several hundred database rows can be added for each processed message.

  • Extensive reporting through the Control Center can have a major impact. If you use per-sender or per-recipient reports, at least one database row is added for each message.

  • The maximum number of entries in a Group Policy Members list is approximately 10,000. If you require more than 10,000 list entries, you need to modify MySQL (and possibly Tomcat) configuration values to support additional entries. This limitation refers to the number of entries in the Group Policy Members list, not the number of users at your company.
