Is there an impact on performance of SLM as the number of SLM user accounts is increased?
We currently have about 50 but looking for this to be over 250.
when talking about 'SLM user accounts', are you talking about users accessing the SLM web interface? If so, I would expect the following to happen when increasing this number:
I am not expecting the Data Update Job to be affected in any way. SLM users are not taken for any calculation or normalization process and therefore do not affect the duration of the Data Update Job.
However if many users are accessing the web interface at the same time, there may be a need of adding resources to two servers (SLM server and SQL server). It does not mean, that you require an immediate raise of system resources, but you should keep an eye on this and depending on your user habits evaluate, whether to add more resources.
Hope this helps!
Thank you, yes i did mean users accessing the SLM web interface.
I will keep an eye on performance as we increase the users and suggest we do it gradually rather than adding all the users at once.
I would recommend to carefully consider the different roles you have configured in Snow Management and Configuration Centre (SMACC) specifically which reports you give people access to. There are a number of report in Snow that bring back lots of data, specially if run with out any filter criteria. Remove these types of reports from the users that don't need them and educate those that do that they should set filters.
