PAM sizing question

Please help me propose the Hardware for PAM deployment

1) If we have 15 Unix/Linux agents(12 IBM AIX and 3 RHEL) and 5 MS Windows agents, then how much cpu and memory is required on PAM Manager ?

2) If we have 25 Unix/Linux agents(20 IBM AIX and 5 RHEL) and 10 MS Windows agents, how much cpu and memory is required on PAM Manager ?

3) How much CPU and Memory is required on Database Proxy Servers, if a single Proxy Server is connecting 05 simultaneous connections to 5 databases(03 Oracle Databases and 2 MS SQL Databases)

4) do we have to purchase License for each proxy server of Database servers ? e.g if we install Proxy role on 3 separate machines, the do we have to purchase the 3 licenses of Proxy Server ?

5) How many databases a single Proxy Server can connect ? is there any limitation or License requirement based on number of Database Servers a single Proxy Server can connect ?

6) do we have to purchase the license for the secondary node if we configure the cluster of PAM Manager ?

See below for the System Requirements for both manager and agent:

The following is the official Performance and Sizing Guideline:

There are current efforts within the product to update and provide a more detailed guide in this regard. For now, there isn't any other recommendation for scaling sessions. The recommended hardware requirements should certainly be sufficient for the scale you are asking here.

In regards to licensing, I believe licenses are determined on an endpoint basis, so the proxy role could be deployed as needed, and managers as needed. I believe any endpoint may count as a license, so a target db to be proxied to or an agent on a Windows server. I would recommend contacting the Product Manager (PM) of PAM for more details regarding licensing questions.
