    Hi Wayne:

    You're likely to get answers all over the board on this one, but perhaps
    that is exactly what you want.

    Other than some obvious restraints, like virtual memory, network
    CPU cycles, etc., I have never heard of an IDMS system that could not
    support the maximum concurrent number of users (albeit I had a lot of
    during the Cullinet years doing performance and tuning consulting to
    exactly that result ;-}} ).

    That said, I suspect you may be asking about life in the 'new world',
    web services, etc.

    I have personally simulated 10K users hitting an ASP page that
    connected/retrieved minimum data from an IDMS database. I don't have
    of the details anymore, but the overall response was about 1.17 seconds
    running the simulation for about 15 minutes. This was done on CA iron
    2003/2004 on a R14.1 CV.

    Of course, it was just a simulation, but it illustrates that you can
    push a
    rather large load through a CV if you have enough back-end resources.
    Again, just my 2cents...your results WILL vary...
