Is the server capacity to accommodate web services is based on physical or logical number of cores?

Hi All,

We are trying to find the limitation for the number of ArcSoc.exe (generated when publishing services using ArcGIS Server) that can be accommodated in a server.

I would appreciate if anyone can hep me .

Logical cores, but memory is your primary limiting factor. Processor generally comes into play more with GP than with Mapping Services.

Honestly, there's not a well defined answer here that's going to fit for every use case - it depends on:

a. The resources available on the GIS Server machine - both memory and processor

b. The type of services you're running (Map/Feature or GP or Image or...?)

c. Virtual memory and desktop heap allocation
