ASP.NET Web form:capacity planing RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are going to develop an asp.net web form application for a cable tv company having 10 simple aspx pages for 8,0000 users base and around 2500-3500 concurrent users.

    We'll consume hosted WCF service in web application in the same production box.

    I know that capacity depends so many factors like response time, page size,RTT,cs,bandwidth,payload etc.

    but I am looking for the minimum hardware configuration of the web server box.

    Thanks,

    Anees

  • I am presuming that web server and WCF hosting IIS server are same on the same web server.

    As far as my experience is concerned, a dual core CPU with 4 GB RAM machine is sufficient to serve a medium type application with 200 concurrent users.

    In your case, I assume that out of 80000 users, the simultaneous users who are on the application(might be just looking at the application and not clicking much) will be around 8000(10%) and the concurrent users will be around 20% of simultaneous users(1600).

    So you can have 2 servers with 2 *quadracore CPU and 16 GB of RAM for your simple application taking care of web and app(WCF) tier.

    Hope this helps.

  • Without knowing more it's impossible to comment. How simple is simple? What infrastructure do you have? E.g. if the pages are common between the users then a good http caching mechanism will mean practically none of your servers are hit!
