    I suggest you ask your Cognos Sales Rep to look into finding this kind of information.

    Are you going to the IOD conference next month? If so, there are often multiple people there from large installation. Talking to them in person may be your best source of information.

    Good luck,
    Opher

      Thanx Opher . Currently we do need some base information ( for N numbers concurrent users and M numbers of reports with lets say some millions of records what would be the configurations . So that we can have our base research and then probably approach IBM folks with our capacity management .  

       

      So if you have any kind of information on the above will be great ssourse of help .

        The thing is to plan for peak usage. How many concurrent users? How many reports will be run at the same time? You can have dozens of web servers and Cognos dispatchers for load balancing but can your data sources handle all those simultaneous connections?

        Are you using Windows? Linux? Something else?

          We will be having 30K users everyday login and expected reports run usage will be around 70K .Reporting  Database will be  based on MPP . Surely we will be using Linux with Cognos 10.2 . Now the problem is we are not sure about the configuration we supposed to take care or really cognos can handle thiskind of massive scale of report executions .

          It will be a great help if you anyone can share or through some insights about the configuration measures . and any pros and cons going with this massive scale .
