The size of the system depends partly on the number of concurrent users, that is, users actively working at the same time. In a Global Workshare Configuration (GWC), it is probable that work will be done at several sites in a non-concurrent way. In this case, there is less impact on performance. For example, if you have two sites with 60 users at each site but the users at the two sites do not work at the same time, you could consider the user load to be 60 users.

In a Global Workshare Configuration when users are working concurrently at several sites, the work done at one site will impact each site as the data is pushed to the other sites. In a hub and spokes configuration, the data is first pushed to the hub then the hub pushes it to the other sites. We estimate that the equivalent user load (the number of effective users) for each server to be the users on that server plus 25% of the total concurrent users of all the other sites. For example, in a configuration with 6 sites and 40 users at 5 sites, and 5 users at 1 site:

  • When 3 sites (with 40 users) are working concurrently, the equivalent number of users at each site is: 40 (concurrent users for this site) + (0.25 * (2 * 40)) (users for the 2 other sites) = 60 users.

  • When all 6 sites are working concurrently:

    1. The equivalent number of users at each of the 40-user sites is: 40 + (0.25 * (165)) = 81 users

    2. The equivalent number of users at the 5-user site is: 5 + (0.25 * (200)) = 55 users.
