Capacity Planning
Capacity planning is essential to deliver a pre-determined optimal/consistent user experiencethroughout the lifecycle of a solution.Capacity planning refers to
identifying the changes (from a capacity perspective only)
needed to be done to the environment to maintainthis predefined user experience over the lifecycleof the solution.In the simplest of terms, this changes can refer toadding more CPU/Memory/Storage/Networkcapabilities along with suitable configurationchanges to the application (Grid, versionupgrades, 64bit vs32bit etc) as and whenidentified to be required.
Capacity Planning or Performance Tuning ?
Capacity planning is pro-active whereas performance tuningis mostly reactive.Capacity planning is anticipating demand ahead of time andrecommending suitable changes to the environment.Capacity planning (unlike performance tuning) is not an exactscience in the sense it requires some guess work based on
prior history and experience with the environment.
I would feel, Performance tuning is trying to get the best outof existing infrastructure
for e.g
rewriting sql, creating anindex etc.
When a user complains of poor performance of the
it is important that you establish if this is a capacity constraint resulting in sub optimal user experience or code/application issues.
Capacity planning can help identify performance issues earlyon.
