Migration performance data for Project Server 2007

Project Server 2007

Updated: May 7, 2009

Updated: 2009-05-07

ImportantImportant:

This article contains rough data based on the migration testing Microsoft has done. This data is approximate and should only be used to get a general idea of migration performance. Although we include specific configuration information used in our testing, it is important to note that a number of variables can affect migration performance times.

Configuration Specifications

The configuration used to derive the migration performance data used the following specifications:

Configuration   Project Server 2007 application server, Project Web Access, and database server on a single computer; Project 2003 database on a separate computer running Microsoft SQL Server

Hardware for Project Server 2007   2.8 GHz CPU, 2 GB RAM

Hardware for Project Server 2003 SQL Server   4 processors (2.5 GHz each), 4 GB RAM

Profile specifications

Four different customer migration profiles were used to derive the performance data. The table below gives specifications for each profile that was used during testing for migration performance data. It represents data from Project Server 2003 to be migrated.

NoteNote:

If you want to verify any of these values in your existing database to see which profile your data most closely resembles, the "SQL Script to obtain Profile Information" section of this article contains an SQL script to help you determine the quantities for your system.

Profile 1: Small number of projects Profile 2: Medium number of projects Profile 3: Large number of projects Profile 4: Very large number of projects

Performance profile times

The following table contains performance times required to migrate data for each of the four profiles described in the previous section, based on the described configuration specifications.

Profile 1: Small number of projects Profile 2: Medium number of projects Profile 3: Large number of projects Profile 4: Very large number of projects

SQL script to obtain profile information

The following SQL script can be run on your Project Server 2003 database to derive migration profile information (for example, number of projects, number of custom fields in use, and so on). You can then compare the results with the table in the "Profile specifications" section to help you determine which profile your Project Server 2003 data that you want to migrate most closely resembles. When you determine this, then you can anticipate the migration performance times you are most likely to have.

To run the script:

  1. Open Microsoft SQL Server Query Analyzer.

  2. Connect to the computer running SQL Server on which the Project Server databases reside.

  3. Open the "profile assessment" script in SQL Query Analyzer.

  4. Insert your Project Server database names where noted in the script.

    1. Find <Enter "Project Tables" database name> in the script. Replace it with your "project tables" database name.

    2. Find <Enter "Web tables" database name> in the script. Replace it with your "Web tables" database name.

      If you do not use the split database configuration, simply enter the name of your Project Server database for both database names.

  5. On the Query menu, choose Results to Text.

  6. On the Query menu, click Execute to run the script.

Profile assessment script

Make sure to edit the script with your Project Server 2003 database information before executing it.
