Tuning Server Cluster Performance

High transaction volumes and a large number of concurrent users on a PPM Server can degrade server response time. If the PPM Server is running on a multiprocessor system, spare CPU may be available, but JVM limitations can prevent the system from using the spare CPU.

In this case, consider using a PPM Server cluster. In this system configuration, multiple PPM Servers point to the same database instance and can be started on one or more systems. In addition to added capacity, running on multiple systems increases availability.

To use your multiple-CPU system effectively, this may be necessary on a two-CPU system, and it is required on systems with more than two CPUs.
