Hmm . . . last I checked, 25% of 3600 was 900, but I'm being picky.
As Cary Millsap (Optimizing Oracle Performance) points out, it is hard to
predict where the bottlenecks are. Either scaling up or down. Offhand I
would guess that you are probably close if it is just an OLTP application.
But are there critical batch jobs involved?
Do vendors still offer benchmarks? You could prepare a benchmark that
represents your goal and then execute it on the hardware configuration you
propose to purchase. Or figure a disaster will never occur, so just take a
S.W.A.G. at it.
