performance monitor

By earljb ·
I need to load software on 30+ machines in a satellite office - all of them running NT 4.0 on a LAN. I will be mapping to a laptop, also running NT 4.0 Workstation. What do I need to view in performance monitor to be able to tell how many workstations I can efficiently load at the same time?

I would watch your network interface system objects such as bytes Total/sec and Output Queue Length. A queue length greater than 2 may indicatae a bottle neck.

You may also want to conduct this during a time that users are not active on the network.

I am confirming the statistical viewings of the last post. Be aware that with NT Workstations only, you may have problems with any more connections than 10. NT Srver as just a "member Server" can support hundreds, even thousands of simultaneous connections. The symptoms will be that some workstaions as they randomly try to access their network drives may not be able to access it.
