Web Server Specifications for ASP.NET APP!

Discussion in 'ASP .Net' started by Freelancer_To-Go, Aug 13, 2006.

  1. HI ALL!!

    We are in the process of purchasing a new web server for an event we
    are holding and was wondering if any of you guys know if there is some
    sort of formula or guideline we should follow to help determine the
    specifications of the server we will require.

    The event held will server 350 - 400 delegates who will access an
    internal website with 5GB of documents (thousend odd doc, xls, ppt
    files) using their laptops and a number of wireless hotspots throughout
    the event building. The server will be a Windows Server 2003 based
    plateform (maybe WebServer Edition) running IIS6.

    I've been searching the internet and microsoft sites but can't seem to
    find a definate document that will tell me how to determine the server
    spec required based on the a 350 concurrent user and 5GB of documents
    assumption ...

    Please help... :eek:|

    That amount iof delegates should not task any decent server calss machine
    with a gig of RAM. If you have 350 - 400 delegates you are unliekly to get
    350 concurrent request, unless they all decide to download docs at the same
    time. I would estimate you would have maybe 50 concurrent requests at your
    absolute busiest time, if that.

    That amount iof delegates should not task any decent server calss machine
    Also, if you're just serving static files (word docs etc) and there isn't
    any server side processing such as ASP.NET pages talking to SQL Server or the
    like then it probably won't need that much power behind it. I wouldn't begin
    to give a full spec on processor power, but as clickon said you probably
    wouldn't need much more than a gig of RAM to keep the operating system happy.
    I doubt you'll bother IIS that much.
