Controller Based WLANs

What are the Airgroup scalability limits across different controller platforms?
Question What are the Airgroup scalability limits across different controller platforms?
Environment This article applies to Aruba Mobility Controllers running ArubaOS version 6.3.0.0

 

In a multi-controller airgroup deployment, there is a scaling limit of 2000 AirGroup servers and 16000 AirGroup users for all controllers in a cluster. If you require more servers and users than the prescribed limit, configure multiple clusters so that each cluster is within the prescribed limit.

Whereas, in Single controller model, the number of airgroup servers and users depends on the individual controller:


Controller ModelNo. Of Airgroup ServersNo. of Airgroup Users
3200XM 500 1500
3400 1000 3000
3600 2000 6000
M3 2000 6000
7210 2000 9000
7220 2000 12000
7240 2000 16000
 

 

The CLI commands "show airgroup servers" and "show airgroup users" would help us to know maximum limits per controller. Following are the screenshots from the Aruba 3400 Mobility Controller:
