I am faced with problem as to how to decide the Hardware configuration for the servers? I have a distributed architecture with 3 servers with the planning , essbase, EPMA , Financial Reporitng and Web Analysis. I am using Oracle database for RDBMS. I have the following servers :
1st Server - Linux Server - with the web tier installed on this .
2nd Server LInux server - Oracle RDBMS and ESSBASE service
3rd Server - Windows 2008 Server RA framework , print service , Financial Reporting , EPM Dimension Server.
Suppose I will have 2 Planning applications with monthly data loads.
What should be the Hardware configuration that should be optimum do you think ?
In the epm installation start here document only the minimum requirements are given . I have noticed that if we follow the minimum requirements given we are able to install and configure but the performance becomes a great issue later on.
Any advice as of how to properly estimate the hardware configuration of the servers?

I am a consultant myself but new to the field so I was just asking for a suggestion . I have already setup the environment with the Linux servers having 4 quad processors and 32GB RAM while the windows server having 2 quad core processors and 16GB RAM. Even though this configuration is much higher than that recommended by oracle yet the performance is depleting. So I just asked for a suggestion if you may.
Are there any parameters on which you decide as of how to estimate the hardware configuration. I am not asking for your trade secrets just some common pointers.
