SP Box capacities

  Asked By: Payal    Date: Jan 24    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 731

Looking for some help. I've built an SP solution and have deployed it to
a group of test users who are enjoying the functionality save for one
feature- speed. There seems to be a little bit of latency that I have
been able to track through performance monitors, including some maxed
out spikes when documents are introduced and published. I am using a
Compaq Proliant 1600 PIII 500 with 512 kb ram. What are your boxes at?
I know that is a little weak in processing speed but if I can gather
enough evidence from the SP developer community I could easily make a
case for a new box. Help a brother out?
Cheers all, and thanks in perpetuity to everyone on this board for the
info they provide.

Most of my boxes are dual 1 gig processors with at least 1G of mem.

I have dual 1 G processors as well as 1 G of memory. I have 100 users
and it's running fine. Take a look at the link below. This document
helps you select your hardware base on number of users  and documents.

One thing for sure, do not skimp on the hardware. What happens is that the end
users must put up with a slower system, blame it on SPS and fight it forever.
Without users  buying in on the concept,it will become a nightmare.

I went through this entire process
with our customers at the beginning because they were complaining of how
slow the system was. But they learned to live with it because they liked
what SharePoint can do. But you also have to keep in mind that
eventhough you might have a beast for your hardware, it still depends on
the network environment that you are in.

Also, there is a "tuning" whitepaper in the SDK area. You should try to get some
baseline params first then start tuning and see what type of changes you see.
