TPC-C Rules of Thumb
1.2 tpmC per User/terminal (maximum)
10 terminals per warehouse (fixed)
65-70 MB/tpmC priced disk capacity (minimum)
~ 0.5 physical IOs/sec/tpmC (typical)
250-700 KB main memory/tpmC (how much $ do you have?)
So use rules of thumb to size 10,000 tpmC system:
- How many terminals?
- How many warehouses?
- How much memory?
- How much disk capacity?
- How many spindles?
