I am tasked with determining needs for various components for a very large
organization segmented to large centers. I have been trying to research how
to size and test for the DHCP implementation. None of the information I have
been finding on the web gives me meaningful numbers.
I am asking for help in an industry-standard way of talking/testing DHCP
performance. Or something that is industry-accepted. In other words, I need
a definition and a level of performance to provide to companies so that they
may answer with the type/size/number of hardware pieces (as well as
software) to accommodate my customer's needs. This is for an
I have heard "operations-per-second", "transactions-per-second", etc. How do
people define and measure performance? I am most interested in what server
performance is nominal for a large network (let's say ~60K nodes) for
average and peak (everybody turns on at 8 in the morning).
Any pointers/help is much appreciated!
