System requirements for BO Enterprise XI 3.0 with 3 cloned webi services


I'm wondering what the system requirements would be for a server to host a BO Enterprise system (XI 3.0) if it is connected to a SAP BW system.

The system should be able to cope with around 150 to 200 calls/requests maximum at a time.

The users log in into SAP and launches a request via an SAP screen with behind that an URL request that is constructed based on a guest account (max 200 requests at the time) for BO. Because it is always the same account (Guest) that is used over and over again I'm wondering what kind of additional requirements the system should support.

We did some stresstesting with 120 simultaneous users. Even with 3 cloned web intelligence processing servers it blocked several times.

For the moment it is running on following hardware specifications:

HRBOXI (Dell PowerEdge 2950 (Servicetag: GMZ834J))

Memory: 8 memory slots available on motherboard of which 2 are used (each is 2GB) Total available memory at this moment is 4GB.

CPU: 2 x Intel Xeon E5420 (quad core). There are 2 CPU sockets on the motherboard that are in use.

Disks: 2 x 146GB (15K) SAS

On that there is a 32bit operating system in use. We would like to start with upgrading that to 64 bit OS.

Can someone tell me if this machine is suitable for production purposes for BO Enterprise linked to an SAP BW on mainly HR-data? I mean by that does this machine has enough processors to be able to cope with 3 cloned webintelligence services at a time. And also enough RAM memory?

Many thanks Thierry Renaer
