Windows 10 Pro User Limit

Post by dcipher » Fri Oct 30, 2020 2:54 pm

Hi

I understand that Windows 10 is not the best platform for use with TSPlus but for some small companies it might be ideal. So I wondered what is a reasonable limit to place on the number of concurrent users for Windows 10 Pro and how much ram would you recommend?

Thanks,
Simon

Hello,

Windows 10 Pro is a perfect choice for a low cost server. Our hardware pre requisite has not changed much over the years.

You will find all basic information regarding TSplus pre-requisites here : https://www.terminalserviceplus.com/docs/pre-requisites

What is important to keep in mind, is that your server's performance will mostly depend on these criteria :

The amount of memory used by your published application, some applications requires more memory than others.
The percentage of CPU used by your published application, some applications requires more CPU than others.
Fast disk access, this is also important to consider if your application needs to write a lot of data, especially if more than 50 users are connected simultaneously.
The amount of GDI/Users objects used by your published application. Some application may cause servers to hang because of this Windows limitation that is not dependent of hardware ressource, more information about this can be found here : http://blogs.technet.com/b/markrussinov ... 15174.aspx

You can check these by opening a task manager and click on the process tab, use the display feature to add GDI and User objects. You can also use the process explorer app from sysinternal for more detailed information on what ressources your application consume most and monitor the load when multiple users log in. It can be downloaded here : https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sysint ... s-explorer

Hi

Thanks-you for this information. Please note that the link to Mark Russinov article on GDI is no longer valid.
