ISE Design/Architecture Guide

I have been poking around internally to see if we have a design guide for ISE that covers different design options, different size deployments, best practices, etc.  To my surprise I haven’t been able to find one.  Could someone please point me in the right direction?

Re: ISE Design/Architecture Guide

I find the design / install guide is not very clear.  When you get to the distributed deployment section it just lists 500k active sessions without indicating a per node figure.  I have been given mixed information being 20k per node or 40k per node.  Are the active sessions per node figures outlined anywhere when using dedicated PAN and MNT nodes?
