Best Practices for high load instances

We need 100+ projects and 1000+ users hosted on single Crucible instance.

Do you know any performance limitations, or best practices for hardware/instance configurations we may run Crucible without performance issues?

This is probably a little late, but I noticed there was no answer...

We currently run Crucible with 300+ projects and around 800 users and we only have problems if people have particularly large code reviews (usually a result of bad practices or waterfall development) or if there are anomolies in the Subversion commit.

I'm not sure what the limit is for a Crucible instance but in my experience it seems more limited by project size than amount of projects.

I find it works best with multi-threading enabled (we use 3 threads for initial scans and incremental) and also increase your Java heap to a reasonable size for your instance. We use max 2GB. This information is in the docs on performance tuning I think.

There's a problem with InfinityDB cache (its size is not capped and may exhaust heap of any size) -- https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/FE-4427

There's a workaround, but it causes a 10-15% performance hit
