[THIN] Re: RTO's Tscale vs Aurema's ARMTech shootout

RTO and Armtech are both fine products and can even be used in conjunction
with each other to get the most bang for your buck.  If you are truly
seeking all options there is also Appsense Optimizer at
http://www.appsense.com and Wyse Expedian (which is basically the same as
RTO as well as Relevos by Wmsoftware http://www.wmsoftware.com that you
should evaluate.

Subject: [THIN] RTO's Tscale vs Aurema's ARMTech shootout


Hi,

I have a client with 50 users and 2 Metaframe XPa servers on windows 2000
standard SP4. Both servers have 4 GB RAM which is for 75% (3 GB) consumed
in the afternoon of a typical day.

This client wants to optimize his memory usage so that when one servers
would die, the other one would be able to sustain the load. I am in the
process of evaluating RTOsoft's Tscale and Aurema's Armtech. At this point
I looked at Armtech which I think only gives me the possibility to put
quota on users CPU and memory usage. What I am looking for really is
something that does pure out-of-the-box tuning so that my server consumes
less memory (be it virtual or real memory) without putting quota on users
server usage.

Questions:
1. is this possible? (ie. pure application optimization without the need
to enforce quota)
2. can this be done by one of these two products? If not, is there a
product that I don't yet know about?

Thanks a lot for your answers,

Erik Blom
