By vitosemat ·
We are soon having a LAN.I have been asked to draft a sizing document which will be used in justifying purchases for more memory,processors,hard disk space and NIC.I need a sample document that I can be used to evaluate the above taking into consideration the number of users on the LAN and so on.I need a sample plan/criteria on how i can best go about it.Is there a worksheet that i could use to get quick results(A methodology of sorts) Thank you

Need an Evaluation Document

All of this typically depends on your applications. Here are the basics:

Data size (files to be stored/saved)
Applications (e.g. email, cad, groupware/collaboration, etc.)
Network load.

You have to do your own data collection vis-a-vis number of users, applications used and the number of average users, load distribution (time of day), estimated network bandwidth utilization, etc. Then you look at the capabilities of the servers you have, determine the shortfall, and place the request(s).

Various vendors, i.e., Microsoft, Novell, Dell, Compaq, etc., often have white papers which can help you size these things out.

Hope this helps,

Kent Manley
