We are using xLarge-96 profile with 98 GB RAM and 28 Cores. We are observing skipped purepaths whenever the transactions/Sec crosses 5500 which is acceptable as per the design i think.
Very soon our traffic volumes will increase further and may go beyond 7K- 8K transactions/Sec. If we increase the RAM and Cores and upgrade the server to v7.0* will it sustain that traffic? OR 5.5k is the max limit for Appmon with xLarge-96?
Our Sever is in v6.5.29 at the moment.
xLarge-96 environment is designed to support 6,500 Transactions/sec with 24 Physical Cores (No virtual cores (Hyper-Threading), for Medium and higher, a clock speed of 2.6 GHz or higher is required) and 96GB Memory (Required memory for the AppMon Server and operating system. If there are other processes running, then additional heap is required).
I would recommend you to go through with the 'Deployment Guide' to get a closest requirements to achieve your goal.
