[THIN] Re: How many users are you getting?

I have one client that currently has 4 Xpe boxes servicing approx. 100+
users per machine (not by my recommendation). As I explained to them, if
one of the servers goes down, the redistribution of the users over the
remaining 3 servers potentially could cause a degradation in overall
performance.=20

My question is what do you guys and gals who have 100+ users per server
do if one goes out? Do you maintain enough servers to handle the extra
load in emergency situations?=20

I usually recommend that clients keep the user load to 35-45 users per
server max. and purchase more hardware if more users are connecting.

Subject: [THIN] How many users are you getting?


In an earlier e-mail on this list Sjolund, Dag was seen to say: "we
routinely have 250+ concurrent sessions per server"

Saweeeet. Is what I say to that. The largest number of concurrent
connections I could ever get or have worked on was about 120 at one
client with 110 per server (taking second place) at another.=20

Both of these were running Term EM applications on older quad
xeons.(read 500mhz and a little up no 3.0 ghz stuff)

So the question that came to my mind is: How many users are YOU getting
per box? And on the big ones (100+ users) what types of apps are you
running?
