    Maximum Threads supported on Windows server 2003

    Hi
    We are developing a server application ,we have decided to adopt windows
    2003/2008 server. We want to know the theoritical analysis as for as number
    of threads and process these server can support considering following
    paramerts
    1. RAM
    2. No of CPU
    3. 32/64 bit processor

    Q1 What will be the maximum limit for threads (in the same process)
    considering above parameter ?
    Q2 What will be the maximum limit for total application at a time can
    run,considering above parameter ?

    Waiting for your reply

    Thanks in advance

    Regards
    Manish

    Re: Maximum Threads supported on Windows server 2003

    I am sorry , i think i have put up the question in wrong way .
    There are two parts , O/S and H/W resources

    Q1. As per OS winServer 2003 , Theroritically How many (Maxmium) threads are
    possible (in the same process) at a time ?is there any limitation by O/S

    Q2. As per OS winServer 2003 , Theroritically How many application can run
    at a time ?is there any limitation by O/S

    Q3. Once i know the O/S limit for max number of thread , then I want to do a
    theoritical analysis based upon the H/W resource e.g. RAM and CPU . How
    should i go forward ?

    I hope i am able to explain my requirement

    Waiting for your reply

    2048 threads per process in 32-bit Windows, 4096 in large-address-aware
    applications on a 64-bit version, assuming that no thread has any code
    or data.

    Thanks Dave !
    The stuff you suggested is very useful and it has really helped me to decide
    the system configuration and to design a good application .

    But i have another thingk to ask

    Q1 . Whatever has been explained is with respect to Windows native
    programming , how to know "maximum numbe of threds/process" with respect to
    ..Net programing (managed application)

    Waiting for your reply

    I can't help with that one, but you might try posting a comment on
    Mark's blog, if anyone would know, he might.
