I work in primary schools, and at most these schools have about 150 client machines.
But in terms of concurrent users probably 60 machines.
They server normally tends to be the pdc,dhcp,dns,file & print server.
Curriculum servers dont tend to have a intense database, the only database on curric servers
tend to be the Abacus Intertactive Planner database.
Most of the stuff tends to be roaming profiles, doucments and in terms of programs they run off a share. Would SAS be overkill for such a system?
Im running some performance monitors;
Physical disk: idle time
Physical disk: queue length
Physical disk: disk write time
are there any other monitors i should be looking at?
And what are your opinions on SAS vs SATA, if i was working at a secondary school or higher then I would go SAS all the way, but primary schools tend to be lighter.
