ServerPlus Edition: Max Number of Users?
  • Kefsid May 15, 2012 6:30AM

    We have ServerPlus license and I was wondering how many users can use Omniscope on our server at the same time?

    Kefsid - ServerPlus Editions come with system-wide activation, which means any number of accounts can be activated on the same server machine, and assuming the Scheduler Task List is located in a shared location, any number of users can add tasks to the Task List. As a practical matter, scheduling too many tasks/file operations on one server will eventually cause the turn-around time using just one server machine to become too slow for some users to process their scheduled data flows. At this point, you will need to add another 'peak-load' server machine to add capacity.

    Hi there,

    So you mean, even 1000 staff can use omniscope on same machine at the same time without having any access restriction problem only if our server has enough capacity.. Am i right?

    Omniscope is an in-memory application that is very RAM and processor intensive. Combining scheduled and unscheduled processing of too many diverse file chains by too many users would be extremely difficult to manage in a reporting context. File-size dependent peak RAM footprints and total elapsed time available for processing time-sensitive reports set the effective limits of what can be done on a single ServerPlus machine image, not the number of user accounts.

    Can any number of users , log on to this machine remotely and still use schedular?

    Omar - Yes, assuming the Task List is stored in a shared location accessible from all accounts on the machine. As noted above, as the number and size of files being processed on the same machine grows, depending on the specifications of the machine, the 24/7 server hardware can eventually become a bottleneck, requiring you to add another server machine. Most Server/ServerPlus licensees also have spare matching keys for both peak-load and failover/back-up server machines. Spare Server/ServerPlus keys are sold at the price of Desktops, up to a ratio of 2 spares per main key.
