How to Do Capacity Planning


It is very common for an IT organization to manage system performance in a reactionary fashion, analyzing and correcting performance problems as users report them. When problems occur, hopefully system administrators have tools necessary to quickly analyze and remedy the situation. In a perfect world, administrators prepare in advance in order to avoid performance bottlenecks altogether, using capacity planning tools to predict in advance how servers should be configured to adequately handle future workloads.

The goal of capacity planning is to provide satisfactory service levels to users in a cost-effective manner. This paper describes the fundamental steps for performing capacity planning. Real life examples are provided using TeamQuest® Performance Software.
