Server sizing guide for v5 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does anyone have a server sizing guide for v5?  

    For 10k-15k computers should I break up the 3 processes and load balance the manager and publisher?

    Thanks,

    Jason

  • Thanks Ben.

    That also sucks because now what am I suppose to do get a PFE to tell me how to size my environment?

    I don't think you need to talke to PFE to answer this question. The answer is absolutely yes. 

    If you have an environment of that size, any degradation of service is going to affect a lot of people. The publishing server and management server provide no load balancing themselves. Both components are based on IIS, so you would treat this just like any other web service.

    Put them behind a dedicated load balancer (e.g. NetScaler VPX or MPX) to provide HA. Monitor the environment as users are on-boarded and scale out as required.
