production Retrieval CV

There are plans to significantly increase the number of users, possibly tho=
usands, defined to our IDMS application. Many of the existing users
and a high proportion of the new users will be retrieval only. Currently we=
have approximately 3500 users, where the most we see signed on
concurrently is 580 or so. We kick them off after 20 minutes inactivity. Th=
e users we currently have defined are the ""core"" stakeholders, and I
expect the new users will not be signed on as long or do as much activity w=
ith the application.

I am aware of some of the issues when having a retrieval CV. What may appea=
r to be broken chains to the retrieval CV unless the buffers are
shared with the update system, the application would have to be adjusted sl=
ightly to eliminate any updates during signon etc.
From the performance point of view, we don't have max tasks exceeded, no SO=
S type issues and excellent response time overall. My expectation is
that we could add these new users into the existing update CV, scale the ma=
ximum number of concurrent users appropriately, and there would be no
negative impact, except possibly for an increase in the size of pool 128 wh=
ich contains SH,SK,US,UK types. However I would like to know what the
major benefits are in having a retrieval CV and what I should monitoring in=
the update CV that will indicate a retrieval CV would be worth considering=

Thank you all for the information.
