Apriori Implementation Team - Minutes November 26, 1996 (2:00 - 3:00) Attending: Mike Kearney, Katie McGee, Mike Firstenberg, Lila Shapiro, Kristin Nelson Handouts: - Capacity Planning graph (MK) - Project Plan from Web (MF) - Current master symptom list (KN) Meeting Summary: We discussed capacity planning and have a strategy for capacity versus number of simultaneous users. We estimated the number of users for March 97 at 50 and greater than that in September 97. We reviewed the next steps for the documentation in the knowledgebase. Announcements: John Mulhern from CRC now has access to Apriori via MacX. Generic users will now show the individual's name for follow-up. Mike K. has the Apriori 2.2 software. Issues: ToDo: M. Kearney & L. Shapiro - Continue work on determining upgrade capabilities of current system (memory, disk space, CPU) K. McGee - Ask Chris to contact M. Kearney re: triggers M. Kearney - Contact CMU for latest version of their e-mail trigger M. Kearney - Forward the rules for symptoms from the Apriori meeting M. Firstenberg - Project Plan M. Dettinger - set up Apriori users mailing list Meeting Details: Capacity Planning - Mike K. provided graphs based on Apriori 2.1 and 2.2 system requirements (per Apriori). The chart includes data points for the current configuration and requirements. The following information is derived from these charts and the current configuration: Item Simultaneous users Upgrade for additional users swap space 20 users add disk space memory 35 users add memory CPU 40-60 users upgrade or replace CPU The likely number of simultaneous users for March 1997 is estimated at 40-50. This indicates the campus will need to obtain an unlimited license for Apriori. Estimates for September 1997 are greater than 50 users. A question is whether the Hands Free product will take care of the additional access needs. Performance test - Plans for a performance test on Tuesday, December 17 from 2-3 PM in lieu of the regular meeting. Triggers - E-mail trigger is at the top of the list to do. Documentation - Subgroup of Judy Smith (ISC Communications Group), James Brewer (ISC First Call), Mike Firstenberg, and Kristin Nelson will meet for the preliminary work of modifying the master symptom list and document index. After this has been refined, the group will focus on processes. Plan for an Apriori primary users meeting the second week of January. Minutes recorded by Kristin Nelson. Please notify of any changes.
