Hey there - I chose this forum instead of Flexera One because we haven't switched over yet.
Three months ago I added a second beacon and registered it with FNMS and it's working to split the load on the Agent inventory reports.
Is there any documentation for best practices though?
Example - should I split the business adapters between the two of them? (We have about 5)
The first (oldest) beacon has all the subnets assigned to it - should those be split?
Thanks in Advance

What exactly is it, you want to achieve? Do you want to reduce the load by agents delivering inventory?
In this case you'll need a load balancer. Some Web Application Firewalls (WAF) and Reverse Proxies can provide similar functionality. You'll also need to register the "frontend" address as a beacon, so agents will start reporting to it.
Have you tried widening the inventory window in the inventory settings?

Also Flexera has in the newer version the option to create targets and to assign it to a beacon. You can create targets on subnets if you want, and practically you will force the agent to send the data to the designated beacon.
