Maximum number of routers, interfaces, flows/s

Each Flow Sensor can monitor a single router. To monitor more routers, you must define more Flow Sensors and purchase corresponding Sensor licenses.
Flow Sensor has no limitation on the number of flows it can process. It contains the same algorithms and speed optimizations developed for Packet Sensor, which is used to handle millions of packet/second.
All flow data is aggregated in RAM, consuming in most cases a CPU percentages of less than 1%. Saving the compressed raw flow data consumes disk I/O, but Flow Sensor's performance when it receives tens of thousands of flows/s is negligible.
The only concern about Flow Sensor's performance is the number of endpoints since each active IP that belongs to your network consumes a few kilobytes of RAM.
