Hi,

I am creating solution for my assignment of SCEA part2. Mark Cade's book mentions that, we need to provide theoretical capacity prediction in deployment diagram. However I don't have prior experience in capacity planning. Can I pass the exam without adding this point?
I will be great if anybody can share his/her experience if they have submitted the assignment with capacity details.

Thanks,
Sumit

I didn't do that. I addressed scalability, but I didn't provide an actual capacity number. That would depend on the system and the hardware and ...

Thanks Jeanne for reply.
I have seen many posts saying 'Failed due to - incomplete Deployment diagram/ Not mentioned virtual CPU numbers etc.'.
So I was wondering, which things are important in Deployment diagram?
What I know from posts from coderanch is that our Deployment diagram should contain firewall,load balancer, web and application server,hot swapable components,clustered database, LDAP server etc. However to me it looks like deployment diagram for any assignment will be similar. But that should not be true because in most of the cases this diagram has 40 marks.
Can you please specify if I am missing anything in this digram? Or if you have any sample diagram.

I did pick out a Sun server and list it's specs. I wouldn't do that in real life, but it seemed important for the exam. I did not address throughput with numbers for the system. That isn't something that can be derived from the hardware alone.
