I would like to be able to execute a capacity planning.
This to be able to add a hardware profile to the deployment diagram.
The figures I can already produce are :
* Maximum Number of Concurrent Users
* Think Time
* Average Response Time
* Requests Per Minute
Is there some reference material available that allows me to determine the hardware configuration required of the application server based on these figures? This in terms of number of application servers, cpu, ram, network, storage, ...
For future reference. There are several resources available that could be used to determine the required configuration.
* Guide to GlassFish High Availability to get an impression of what's required based on the glassfish application server.
* SPECweb2005, SPECjAppServer2004,SPECjAppServer2010 to acquire various benchmarks results
Read http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/bladecenter/resources/benchmarks/about/#SPECjAppServer2004 for more benchmarks available.
