Default How many users on a single bes/domino

Please Login to Remove!

Hello all,

We just passed the 600 user mark on our domino BES box running 4.1.4, and I was wondering at what time you folks have decided to add another BES onto your domain? The only performance related concern I've seen is that it can take up to an hour for read/unread marks, as well as deletes from notes to process onto the handhelds.

Any thoughts?

RIM's official stance is 1000. From talking with other people over time, that sounds about right.

I ~can~ have well over 1,000 per box but prefer to stay around the ~600 mark. DR, log collection, maintenance, startup time, and other mundane admin stuff is made easier. If you are willing to make your admin life harder (i.e. try zipping a 600MB log file for submission to RIM) for bragging rights on the # of users on your box then I'm sure with 4.1 you can go above 1200 or even 1500 with the right hardware easy.
