Using the MPM as both monitor and coordinator at the same time

Issue

What is the benefit in having separate MPM monitor and coordinator?

Product Line

SmartStruxure Lite

Environment

MPM

Cause

For smaller networks, it is ok to have the monitor be the coordinator. However in large networks, the monitor will be busy managing the traffic of all the remote MPMs which consumes a big chunk of the CPU % usage. This applies to zigbee, UDP and CAnbus network so it does not help when you make monitor a coordinator since will have to do more work. There is no advantage in having the MPM be monitor+coordinator, there are only disadvantages.
