Hello.

I'm trying to understand the sizer.

How to calculate Applied Weight?

CPU Type : 2 x Intel Xeon Processor 6252 (2.1 GHz, 24 cores) (48 Cores)

Actual Core Capacity : 336.00
Applied Weight : 74.39
Adjustment Due To Memory Issues : 0.00
Adjustment Due To NUMA Considerations : 0.00

Effective RAW Capacity : 410.39 (Actual Core Capacity + Applied Weight)

To answer your question “How to calculate Applied Weight?” you do not calculate it. It is a known quantity provided by the vendor, a characteristic of the selected processor based on industry standard benchmark testing.

You utilize the Applied Weight figure to calculate your Effective RAW Capacity because this gives you a real-world-applicable figure on which to base sizing.

Hi there!

I’m surprised the link does not work for you (is there any error displayed or is the page not loading or…?)

Try navigating in Sizer Help>Sizing Approaches and Logic>Cluster Sizing>Cores (Actual Cores, Adjusted Weight, Memory Adjustments like Unbalanced DIMMs).

From the page:

“Applied Weight

Intel designs a wide range of CPUs to meet different market needs.  Core count certainly varies but the speed of a core is not the same across all CPUs.

So applied weight is where we have adjusted the cores to the baseline processor.”

Let us know if that helps.

Hi Alona.

Thanks for the answer. 

is there any error displayed or is the page not loading or…? → Nothing happened….(blank page)

 

This is all the menu I see.

How to understand the sizing concept? Is there any course available to study? Couple of times I have failed in NCSE level 1 due to the lack of sizing knowledge.Please help.
