  • Hi Abdul,

    well - yes, that seems about right.

    where is SQL in your deployment?

    what other apps / services are running on this machine -

    how many servers in the farm?

    I typically recommend 24-32 gigs RAM for Project Server boxes.  Ram is cheap and users don't like to wait.

    how big are the project schedules, how many custom fields are in use, etc.

    Performance is #1 = SQL, #2 = Apps (where PS services run), #3 = data load on system (no schedules for 15 years), #4 = network between user and servers (presume server to server is giga),

    hope this helps,

    Thanks, Eric S. Pcubed
