Max number of users for simultaneous submissions


Hi there DHIS2 devs,

We had an issue earlier where our DHIS2 server halted and we're trying to
track down what the issue was. It seems likely it was an issue of resources
running out, most likely memory.

We currently have around 500 users but will eventually have something
around 1200-1300 users. Each user is submitting data for a weekly aggregate
report on a Monday morning, either via SMS or internet. They could submit
any time between 6am - 4pm, with a heavy concentration coming in around

So a few questions then:
- Does this seem reasonable?
- What sort of memory requirements would you consider for this?
- How many simultaneous submissions would be possible?
- If it had more would the server queue them or would it cause it to halt?

Thanks for any help,

- Jasper
