Question:

Can the StarTeam Server run on a multi-processor machine?


Answer:

The StarTeam Server has not officially been tested on a multi-processor machine although there are currently no known problems. It is worth noting that StarTeam will most likely not make use of any more than 4 processors if only the server is installed. With the server"s highly multi-threaded design, it makes best use of the processors not by assigning the process to certain CPUs but instead letting the threads naturally execute on all available processors. It is worth noting that for scalability the processors are not normally the cause of performance issues but rather memory, network bottlenecks, and disk I/O, in that order. A white paper on scalability best practices is attached to this article.
