Hi,

I am designing a web application. Suppose application has N number of users, then how to decide the number of users will concurrently use the application at peak time?

Thanks,
Sumit

Why do you need to decide that? Max concurrent users is usually a requirement if it comes up.

If nothing is mentioned about concurrent users in requirement then is it safe to completely ignore number of concurrent users and in a way capacity planning?

No. You thought of it. It is a legitimate concern. However since the assignment didn't specify, you can assume anything you want. I had some assumptions like "I assume I asked the customer and he said XXX".
