IGS "stand alone" version running on windows


We will be implementing soon a BW web Cockpit developed using Web Application Designer. This cockpit will be directing users to several web reports which contain lost of graphs. There will be approximately 200 users accessing these reports.

We currently have one windows IGS 6.3 server that is connected to our BW application server. Is there any limitation on the number of users sending requests to the IGS?

We are concern with not knowing if the IGS server will be able to handle this load.

My questions are:

1. Can the IGS handle this load efficiently?

2. Is there anything that we can do to make sure the IGS server can handle the load?

    Hi Hugo,

    A stand-alone IGS can service multiple SAP BW systems. The requirement is that it is sized correctly for the requests that you will receive. The measurement of the sizing need will be number of requests in parallel and number of requests in a given time frame (i.e. per hour).

    As long as you size for the throughput, you will be fine.

    Number of portwatchers/interpreters for parallelism. Note you will need a number of CPUs to support a large number of portwatchers.

    I hope this helps,
