We are sometimes asked by IT departments the amount of bandwidth a controller and software will use on a network when communicating and sending events.
The packet data between VP and a controller is very small.
Polling is used for communication with each poll being 173 bytes in size.
Every 0.5 sec Vantage Point software sends 27 bytes of command data to a VC controller and the VC controller responds with 173 bytes data to back to Vantage point.
If we have are 10 VC controllers on the network the total packet data size is around 270 bytes for the data request command and 1730 bytes for the response data
