Capacity Planning

Capacity Management is required to ensure that available IT resources will meet current and future business demands.

Datalock utilises clear and tangible capacity planning methods. We have developed a commercial product OreCentral, which specialises in capacity planning and performance management.

OreCentral stores data on the below database dynamics:

  • Physical database size
  • Total machine processing and wait time
  • Transaction Per second
  • Commits per second
  • Concurrent system users
  • Logical reads per transaction
  • Physical / Logical reads per second.

Trend and pattern analysis of the above metrics can be combined to give a clear picture of current and projected system scalability. This data can then be combined with OS statistics to form a sustainable capacity management policy.
