Maximum capacity of Redmin

Added by Hugues Lamy over 13 years ago

Here's a simple question that can lead to a longer response.
Does anybody know what is the maximum capacity of Redmine.

Were planning to have 400 users, 1000 projects and above 50000 issues. Wiki and forum should be kept to a minimum.

Does anybody have that kind of cofiguration with Redmine and this is holding fine.

I'm a bit afraid on performance when a lots of custom fields are involved, but maybe I'm wrong.

The problem is not how many of what you have in there, but how many concurrent requests you plan on having. It also greatly depends on the type of server you want to use, but the rule of thumb is if your db can handle it, you can add more servers running redmine connecting to it. Swing by IRC for more informal talk about your request, or see Eric Davis (Little Stream Software) for Redmine consulting.

I was wandering if anybody ran redmine with newrelic RPM to have a feeling of the limit of the software.
I know I can throw more power to it, but since I'm pitching Redmine against some commercial software, I need some convincing to do.
Of course the other provider says that he could answer the load we will have. It could be smoke and mirrors.
So having an idea where the system will fail and how it will fail is a good pointer for me.

If the database is the bottle neck, it will be the same for the other software too. I should be able to show this point.

As for the concurent load, I would assume that a 100 persons will work at about the same time within a 7 hours period.

Again: It's really about reqs/s, and swing around IRC to speak to the heavier users.

I don't have much experience in load testing, but I could point you to my current installation, give you some facts about the setup and you could do some benchmarks yourself at the times it's less/not used. My current experience was that as long as you have more workers than concurrent requests, getting ~25-30reqs/s out of the redmine on not (that much) cached pages isn't too much of a problem, the number of workers being dependent on the memory you can spare (my passenger processes have ~87MB private/250-300MB total memory usage).

Good morning

I need a current vision of the subject. My production system currently has 1254 active users and its characteristics are:

Installation details on Docker 19.03.1:
Redmine version 3.4.6.stable
Ruby version 2.4.5-p335 (2018-10-18) [x86_64-linux]
Rails version 4.2.8
environment production
Database adapter Mysql2
MySQL 5.6.26 on a virtual server (Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 7.1)

Sometimes it's slow. What things can I investigate? any Redmine configuration file?
configuration of the pool of connections to the DB?

Any help is appreciated
