How many concurrent requests can WAS support?

Hi all,

I want to know what is the maximum number of concurrent users/requests that can WAS6.4(latest pack) support? We are looking at around 40,000 concurrent users.. Is this feasible? If yes what is the max possible?



PS: Would appreciate a prompt response:)

    Hi Craig,

    The connections which we are refering here is individual users connections to the portal or web application deployed in WAS 6.40 SP 12.It can have a threshold maximum of 40000 users any time not beyond that.

    Appreciate if you help us in this specific scenario.

      I would post your new questions to the SDN Suggestions forum, Mark or one of the other SDN folks should be able to help you out with those answers.

      I know that in the forums you can see "Who's Online" and we've hit the over 200 concurrent user mark already.

      If you can get more info on your "hits" then we might be able to find a better way to deal with the problem. I mean for example if R/3 backend is involved you don't need to hold the connection open you can hit then close it and may never have a problem with the concurrent users.

    What type of connections are you referring to?

    Terminal connections: see OSS note 22099

    The parameters are:

    Maximum number of logged on users (parameter: rdisp/tm_max_no): Specify how many users can log on at the same time to an application server. The default is 200.

    Maximum number RFC connections (parameter: gw/max_conn): Here, the default is 500, this will normally be enough.

    As for a 40,000 are you really going to have that many users simulatenously working? I think you can set the RFC connection parameter to a max of 2000.

    See this OSS Note 74141, for info on "Resource Management for tRFC and aRFC"
