Is there any performance impact if the concurrent host limit is full on a PacketShaper?

The Current count for concurrent hosts is an indication of how many host addresses have been learned by the system, that is, the number of entries currently in the host database. Entries in the host database are not periodically aged out or cleared from memory — instead, they are reused when needed for new hosts. Therefore a value of 0 in the Remaining column does not mean your unit can't accommodate any more hosts — new hosts will simply replace hosts that are no longer active. It is normal and expected to see the number of concurrent hosts at its limit.
