Q. Are there any good tools to help me size my System Center Service Manager (SCSM) 2010 RTM or SP1 deployment?

A. Microsoft has released several documents outlining its scalability testing for the RTM version of SCSM 2010. A key one is "Hardware Performance", which talks about their tests of up to 50,000 users/computers in a single SCSM management group. Also, "Service Manager 2010 SP1 Deployment Scenarios" discusses SP1 sizing.
