This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
Regarding capacity planning hints will be provided in the assignment itself. You need to understand them thoroughly and depict an approximate number of users for the application. Based on this how your application has to be deployed, with how many number of managed servers in Cluster, all these information are to be provided in assumptions as well.

What do you guys think I should do related capacity planning
THen you can assume things. I assume there will be less than X ___ per hour. Lets you plan and doesn't make it overly complicated.
I prefer justify in my document that I decide not to provide details like hardware configurations, OS, CPU, Memory, Disk capacity rather than assume these values since my assignment presents no information about it. This is much simpler and safer.
