Resource Estimation RRS feed

  • Question

  • User102459681 posted

    Hi Folks,

    I need to estimate the resources that this application will use, so that I can decide which hosting provider to use.

    What is the best method to gauge and estimate the resources (ram + cpu) my application will use?
    I’m assuming that the way to do this is to find out what resources are needed for a single user and multiply this amount by the amount of estimated users at peak and average times.

    My application is a fairly simple web service where each user does a simple task at a time – so I guess I should measure how much resource these tasks use and then multiply by my estimated users?  

    If the above assumption is correct, how do I find out the resources consumed by a single user or by running a single process/task in an Asp.net application?


    P.S ( I posted a similar post in "Getting Started", but  I now feel this is a better category for the question. I"m not sure how to remove it form there)

    There're many factors to check around such as the server specs, how your app designed. The quick way to test out is to have your site hosted via a live server or use some web stress testing tools to simulate the visiting.
