Small Profile Performance Testing FIM Synchronization

Updated: August 10, 2010

Applies To: Forefront Identity Manager, Forefront Identity Manager 2010

The small organization profile for this FIM 2010 R2 Synchronization performance test is described in the following table.

 

Scale Topology Hardware
  • Single forest

  • 20,000 users

  • 10,000 groups

  • Average of 10 users per group

  • Two servers

  • FIM 2010 R2 Synchronization Service and FIM 2010 R2 Synchronization database collocated on one server

  • FIM 2010 R2 Portal, FIM 2010 R2 Service, and FIM 2010 R2 Service database collocated on one server

Both servers have the same hardware.

  • 8-gigabyte (GB) SDRAM

  • Two quad-core processors

  • Hard disk volumes:

    • Single volume and spindle for the operating system

    • Single volume and spindle for log files

    • Single volume with two spindles in a RAID 10 configuration for data

The tests and results shown in the following table were performed using legacy provisioning. The Active Directory management agent was connected to the single Active Directory forest, as shown in the previous table. The File management agent exported the users that were provisioned by the Active Directory Management Agent to a file. Similarly, the Active Directory management agent import was performed from a file instead of from an actual Active Directory database. This was done to avoid introducing network delays into the test environment. Consider the effect of delays based on the network traffic that is specific to the organization in which you are implementing FIM 2010 when you are estimating synchronization performance.
