How many processes do I need?

As a guideline, you can determine the minimum number of Blueworx Voice Response processes by adding together:

The number of processes you need depends on the configuration of your system. For example, if Blueworx Voice Response is processing signals from more than 60 telephone channels, or if you plan to configure 30 or more 3270 sessions, consider increasing the maximum number of user processes to between 200 and 250. If the number you select is too high, you can always decrease it. Similarly, use of custom servers increases the number of processes required.

Note that even if you configure the maximum number of user processes to be somewhat larger than required, there is no significant AIX performance or resource penalty.
