A role designated by the user for the service components of a modeled application.
A site that receives services from a central site.
The configuration of all parameters required to simulate a particular application model including full specification of all sites, network topology, servers, clients, and usage profiles used when a simulation is run.
The process of evaluating an application in its production environment by defining the number of requests an application can handle, based on a fixed hardware infrastructure.
The main office where most server computers are located.

The Capacity Planner tool that you can use to refine and validate a capacity model after you have initially identified it in the Model Wizard.
The Capacity Planner wizard used to define your application model and hardware infrastructure.
The event-driven simulation engine use by Capacity Planner.
The Capacity Planner process that simulates relevant operations of a modeled application, predicts usage of computer hardware and software and then produces simulation results that you can use to determine whether a capacity model meets your needs.
