Southern Electric is undertaking a major two year programme to redevelop the engineering systems. The system will thus provide engineers with detailed plans of the region and enable them to identify and assess faults or problems with much greater accuracy, speed and confidence. In order to size the requisite DEC Alpha model for the GIS application, which will need to be able to support some fifty workstations, a test system was installed. The Capacity Planning or sizing was initially undertaken using pen and paper taking data from the test system and then scaling this up to the full-size system. Athene/Unix from Metron was then used to confirm these findings and fine tune the analysis.
