I am in process of deciding harware sizing for setting up new webmethods environment(Integration Server and Broker Server). I need to estimate and propose hardare required(processor type, speed,number of processor, memory etc) to run IS 6.5 and Broker 6.5 on wintel system.
what are the methodology/approach to get the hardare estimation. I have gone through the GEAR docs, but cannot decide anything firmly because i can’t do load testing/stress testing as wMsuggest. On what should i do the stress/loading testing if we dont have a hardware itself(catch 22).
How does consultants genereally suggest hardware requirements ? My integration is very simple. IS would subscirbe mapped canonical documents from broker and insert/update the SQL sever table. This canonical contains only one record with max 40 fields. The transaction volume we expect is around 15K in a day and peak volume can be 2K transaction during load time.
Can some one provide their system details for me to have a benchmark where more then 15 K records are processed daily.
Thanks in advance.
