Brocade SMI-S Agent Scalability Question?

I appreciate the responses to my last question ... I've got another related to the same topic. 

Does anyone have any real world experiences managing a large fabric infrastructure via the SMI-S Agent?  I have reviewed the official documentation for v120.11.0, and was curious whether anyone has exceeded some of the scalability recommendations with regards to switches/ports, etc... on a Single SMI-S Agent.

Any suggestions, and/or comments would be appreciated.  Thank you in advance.

I would have to look it up, but I think we have (or had because we are merging) 10 fabric or so per agent.

I'll post numbers and version tomorrow when i'm back at work.

Ok,

If got some numbers from one of our agents.

Version used is 120.10.0 (for ECC)

# fabrics 7

# switches ~16

# ports ~3000

We are well within the limits of this version with regard to port switches and fabrics as per http://www.brocade.com/downloads/documents/support_plans/SMIAGENT/120.10.0/smiagent120.10.0_releasenotes_v1.0.pdf

I don't know about the number off Devices, Zones etc.
