Oracle JD Edwards World

Sizing
Questionnaire

Introductio
n

Thank you for requesting

a sizing estimate for your IBM
JD Edwards World

implementation.
The information you provide in this document will allow IBM to
develop a sizing recommendation which describes the IBM server resources required
to support your plan
ned
JD Edwards World

installation.

It is
recommended that several

resources
be used to complete this questionnaire
(your organization’s business experts, consultants, ISV representatives, etc.) to
obtain
valid

inputs.

What is a Sizing
?

A sizing is an appr
oximation of the hardware resources required to support a specific
software implementation. The purpose of this questionnaire is to collect
information
to estimate the IBM hardware requirements for the implementation of
JD Edwards
World
on IBM System z, S
ystem p, IBM System x or IBM mixed environments.

It is important to understand that “sizing” the hardware for each customer’s
JD
Edwards World

applications implementation is an iterative process, which may be
refined and repeated a number of times. If you
are in the early stages of planning,
you will probably have limited information about your planned environment. In this
case, we can complete the sizing estimate with general information about your
JD
Edwards World

applications users. When you are further

along in your
implementation planning, you will know more about
JD Edwards World

applications,
the modules you plan to use, the number of users and your potential transaction
activity. At that time, you may request another sizing estimate based on more
d
etailed information. In any case, after receiving the results of a sizing estimate, you
may choose to revise your input and request a re
-
sizing. At the Solutions Sizing
Center, we will be happy to work with you throughout this process.

This
questionnaire
, when completed, will return to you a
sizing estimation includ
ing

a
workload from a provider other than IBM. IBM is not responsible for the accuracy of
the data contained in such a workload. Any reliance by you on the third party
workload is at your sole
risk and will not create any liability or obligation for IBM. If
you have any questions or are unsatisfied with the third party workload information,
you should contact the third party provider.

The system resources quoted to you in any sizing related comm
unications are
sufficient only for the workload(s) estimated. Other factors may require additional
resources (e.g. additional non
-
estimated workloads, minimum configurations for
RAID, allowance for growth, workspace, etc).

The information provided to you i
n any sizing related communications are provided
by International Business Machines Corporation (IBM) as a service to you and may
be used for informational purposes only. Use of any sizing related communications is
restricted to the purpose of helping you
predict a possible IBM eServer model
processor, memory and disk resources for a given workload. All representations of

processor utilization, throughput, response time, memory, disk, and other
performance data in the sizing communications are estimates and

averages based
on certain assumptions and conditions. No representation is made that these
throughputs and their corresponding response times or other performance data will
be accurate or achieved in any given IBM eServer installation environment. They ar
e
based on specific configurations and run time environments. Customer results will
vary. Any configuration recommended by the sizing information communicated
should be tested and verified. By accepting this information or using the sizing details
you agre
e to the terms and conditions contained herein. If you do not agree with
such terms and conditions, please do not review or use the provided materials and
return the materials to IBM.

Do you have the right Questionnaire for your
Sizing?

The sizing question
naires are updated frequently. Before

taking the time to complete
it, make sure you have the most recent version. The current version of the
questionnaire can be obtained from your IBM Representative or by
visiting the
IBM
Solutions Sizing website at
http://www.ibm.com/erp/sizing

Sizing estimates for Oracle/JD Edwards World products from the IBM sizing
center are available to IBM customers, IBM and Oracle employees, authorized
IBM business partners and IBM Syst
ems Integrators. All others should contact
their IBM representative.

Instructions

for Completing this
Questionnaire

The completion of this Sizing and Planning Questionnaire
will result in a sizing
estimate. Please read the “What is a Siz
ing”

in the Introduction section of this
document.

The accuracy of the sizing estimate is dependent upon many variables such as the
accuracy of the information provided by you, the customer, (we recognize that it may
be difficult to provide exact numbers o
n your environment during the pre
-
sales
planning period) and the actual usage of the system in a real
-
time environment.
Sizing is an iterative process and system sizing should be revisited a number of
times during the pre
-
implementation phase. Performance

data gathered during the
conference room pilot (CRP) phase should be used to generate a more accurate
estimate of server resources required for a given workload. Once in production,
future hardware requirements should be determined through the Capacity Pl
anning
process.

In this sizing estimate, an estimate of
the
disk space required to support the J.D.
Edwards World database
will provided. It is
based on the number of users defined
for
the

workload estimate. This will be a very rough estimate, as the disk
space required
does not always correlate with the number of active users.

Currently we provide sizing estimates for standard J.D. Edwards World
implementations including 5250 and HTML clients.

If this sizing is for an existing J.D. Edwards World implemen
tation that is only
adding resources for the web client solution, only Contact information,
Application and Infrastructure, Profiles and the Sizing Inputs (
user counts
)

sections

need to be filled out. Detailed transaction and batch information is
not need
ed.

The steps to completing the questionnaire are listed below and described in more
detail
in this document.

1.

Make sure you have the current version of the questionnaire.

2.

Additional Information:

Please list any other information related to your J.D. Edwards World implementation which
should be consi
dered in the sizing, such as additional applications, phased implementations or
other considerations. Also, please provide information on how this information should be
applied to the sizing.


For example, if 3

Identify Infrastructure

Profile

Architecture for Web Clients

Please refer to appendix C for a more complete description of the web components
and sample diagrams.

The J.D. Edwards

World application runs on the System i platform, but the web client
makes use of other packages, including Seagull JWALK,
and a webserver

that can
run on multiple platforms and in a variety of configurations.

The Seagull JWALK server can be run natively o
n the System i using i5/OS, it can
run on an Integrated
xSeries

Server (IXS) under Windows, or it can be run on a
separate System x server using Windows.

Using
IBM HTTP server allows all of the components for J.D. Edwards World to be
run on a single server
. This configuration provides a simpler, easier to administer
configuration for many customers. Other customers may wish to run only the World
application itself on the System i and run the other “front end” components on a
separate server. Likewise, so
me customers may wish to separate the HTTP server
on a different box that is outside a firewall when connecting up to external networks.

Please provide information about your planned architecture by answering the
following questions.

Select location of
Web Solution components (Seagull JWALK Server

(mark only one with an “X”)


Select One of the following Options for the HTML Users

Select One

Web Components running on the World database server, combined
server.


Web Components on a separate, dedicated
server.



The default IBM sizing algorithm assumes that the Web components workload will
run on the same box as the World workload. If Seagull JWALK will be run on a
separate box, please specify
the required platform (System i or

System x):

eparate Web components: System i_____ System x_____

Sizing
Inputs

User Counts and Transactions

Please complete this information as accurately as possible. Be sure not to double
count users. Classify users in the application where they spend a majorit
y of their
time each day. We are trying to size the servers for a peak hour of a day when the
most users are online and actively working.

Active users:


U
sers are judged to be active if they are clicking the “OK” button or
using Fn keys 2 to 3 times a min
ute. Users that are signed on, but are not actually
using the system should not be counted. For this sizing, the number of users
reported should be the total number of active users during a peak period.

Note:

If concurrent active user counts are not know
n, a default of 65% of total users
should be considered a conservative, reasonable estimate for concurrent active
users for most applications. However, some applications, such as Employee Self
Service may have much lower concurrency. The default concurre
ncy for Employee
Self Service is 10% of total users are considered active. Please consider your
planned application usage when filling in the active user tables below.

5250 clients:

Those clients which use a 5250 or “green screen” interface to connect
to

the World application.

Web clients:

Those clients which use a browser interface to connect to the World
application.

Transaction Information (Sales orders/Distribution
only)

The standard scripts used to perform the sizing tests and benchmarks process
transactions at a high rate. A typical user may not proce
ss transactions at the same
rate. To assist in accurately accounting for users, please provide transaction rates
below. The information required is transaction lines per hour during a peak period. If
your peak period is not known then we will account fo
r the peak by taking twice the
average.

For example: If a company processes 100,000 sales orders per month, with an
average of 5 lines per order: Given a 20 workday month and a 10 hour work day, we
would use 100,000 orders x 5 lines per order / 20 days /
10 hours per day = 2500
lines per hour average. To size for a peak period, we would assume twice the
average or 5000 lines per hour.

The transaction information is only used as a comparative check. It is not used to
calculate any resource requirements.
The sales order transactions are converted to
equivalent standard distribution users, and this number is compared to the active
distribution users listed in the user section. This comparison provides validation of
the user counts listed. If the variatio
n between the user counts listed and the
equivalent users is significant, then the user counts may need to be revisited.

Currently Sales Orders are the only transaction type for which detailed data is
available. Other transaction types may be added in

the future.

Appendix A



Explanations and
Terminology

EDI

Electronic Data Interchange is a method of importing data such as sales orders
thoug
h a batch process. Documents are transferred from vendors or other sources
and converted to EnterpriseOne transactions via the import process. Transaction
volumes for sizing purposes are converted to lines per hour, such as sales order lines
per hour, wh
ich need to be processed during a peak period.

Batch Requirements

JD Edwards World reporting and
some
update processes

are batch oriented
. Most
JD Edwards World batch processes are CPU intensive. Because of this, running
multiple concurrent
batch jobs

o
n a single processor will cause some degradation in
performance of the
specific jobs
. Since users generally process at a higher priority,
their performance should not be impacted as much. In most environments, this
batch
job
degradation will be acceptabl
e and running more than 1 batch process per
processor will provide adequate performance. In some environments there are critical
batch processes that must complete in the shortest time possible. In these cases,
the system is sized to allow for adequate pr
ocessors to account for the number of
concurrent batch jobs being run. Care should be taken in answering the number of
concurrent batch processes. Multiple concurrent
batch jobs

will require multiple
processors and can quickly drive the cost of the syste
m higher. A standard IBM
sizing accounts for a significant batch workload and should suffice in most
environments.

To determine number of concurrent
batch jobs
, critical business processes should be
evaluated. What is critical to one business may be rout
ine to others. Some
examples of critical processes are:

Interfaces with other systems that must happen in a short time window or that are
critical to user activity,

Long running import or export processes that have a historically short time window.

Othe
r long running jobs, such as updates, payroll, MRP, etc., that have tight time
constraints.

Short running jobs that are very high volume that are critical to business processes
such as printing pick slips or invoices in very high volume businesses.

These a
re only a few examples to consider when determining the number of critical
processes
. Your business processes should be evaluated along with historical
patterns for your industry.

High Availability

A highly available system can be implemented using tech
nologies including MIMIX
(from Lakeview Corp.), OMS (from Vision Solutions), or Datamirror (from Datamirror
Corp.) on the iSeries. In all cases, a second system is required for implementation.

JD Edwards World Sizing
Scenarios

With the rel
ease of the J.D. Edwards World Web solution on A7.3 cume 15, there are
several implementation architectures available. The web components, made up of
Seagull JWALK server and a HTTP server can either be placed on the System i
server or on separate servers
. All of the functions are supported natively in i5/OS
and also supported on Windows.

Several configuration options are presented below. The first option, shown in
diagram 1, implements all of the pieces, including J.D. Edwards World software and
all of
the web components on a single System
i

box. This solution

utilizes Seagull
JWALK server a
nd IBM HTTP server all running natively on i5/OS.

Diagram 2 represents a customer that wants to run the web components on a
separate box from the J.D.

Edwards World software. A separate box running Seagull
JWALK server and IBM HTTP server is shown. Again, this box could be a separate
System i or a System x server running Windows.

Note that for the System x server option running Windows, Microsoft In
ternet
information Server (IIS) could be run in place of IBM HTTP server.

Diagram 3 shows another option that might be suitable for customers that wish to run
as much of the workload as possible on their System i server, but would like the
a
dditional security of having a separate HTTP server. The separate HTTP server
could be run on another System i server or could be a System x server running
Windows.
