Determine operational capabilities of GMN
It is necessary to determine the performance characteristics of the python member node stack so that deployment guidelines can be developed.
Aspects that need to be determined:
- total number of objects that can be managed
- maximum viable size of objects that can be managed
- number of simultaneous clients that can be supported for common DataONE operations
These are all inter-related and highly dependent on hardware and connectivity, though a baseline set of capabilities should be determined for a commonly available virtual machine configuration so that hardware and connectivity guidelines can be developed for different types of data repositories.
