John,

I can't seem to find an S20 2178 on my lists.. Do you know what the
batch CPW is for that machine..

Also, a connection of that speed would definetely be a problem.  The machines
that we are selling normally have a 100MB ethernet, a lot of memory and disk,
and a beefy processor.

That speed is like running the browser over a dial in connection.  It is usable,
but
slow.  For that many users (100 concurrent browser), your batch CPW would need
to be at 1000 for good/great response time.  Also, file size has a lot to do
with performance
of the product.  Remember, it uses Client Access' ODBC driver.

Note: I have heard that depending upon how you load the software (MAPICS and
Client Access),
you could be overlaying the later drivers. I think I heard that the IBM CA can
sometimes load an
older ODBC driver or administrator over a more current one.  I would check that
out as well.

Hi Michael

We are running an S20 2178 about 1GB memory.

John



          John,

          What size system are you running with that many browser
users?

          Michael



          Yes

          I have an issue with the whole client server technology of
MAPICS in that
          there is little support material out there for managing the
environment.
          From set-up to recommendations for remote lines.  We have
about 10 remote
          sites running over 64/128K frame relay connections CIR of
16-48K.

          We are stilling having performance issues and the browser
falling over.

          We have pretty well dealt with all the obvious network
performance type
          issues but are cannot find any recommendations or guidelines
on what is
          known work.

          We are running well over 100 people on the Browser on R5 of
MAPICS.

          We have approached MAPICS to find out what ports are used on
the AS400 for
          the applications and they haven't yet been able to provide
this information
          in the mean time we have identified these ourselves.

          John
