Capacity Planner simulation results can help you determine whether over-utilized or under-utilized hardware is affecting your capacity model and whether there are any high-latency transactions in your capacity model.

Note
If you think you might have resources that are under-utilized or over-utilized or if you think transactions have unacceptably high latency, see Over-Utilized Resources and High-Latency Transactions.

After you run the simulation, by clicking Run Simulation on either the Model Wizard or the Model Editor toolbar, the Capacity Planner Results Summary page appears. This page displays the following sections:

Note
The last four sections in the preceding list display threshold indicators, which are represented by icons on the Results Summary page that indicate how hardware and network resources are utilized in a capacity model. These icons vary in color depending on whether hardware or network resource values do not exceed a threshold, are within 5 percent of a threshold, or exceed a threshold that you have set for hardware devices on the Threshold settings page.

For transactions that show high latency or take a long time to complete, as indicated by the threshold indicators in those sections of the Results Summary page, you can try to reduce the latency by doing the following:

For a hardware or network resource that exceeds the threshold for a device, as indicated by the threshold indicators in those sections of the Results Summary page, you can try to reduce the utilization by doing the following:
