Hello there,

I am tryiong to size a Citirx farm where the only apps used on the Citirx servers will be Internet Explorer and JRE. There will be about 5000 concurrent users.

Whats the easiest way for sizing this? Are there any approximate stats out there for what a browser session consumes on a Citrix box.

Thanks

There's no "easiest" way to size this. There's not even an easy way to size this.
A single browser session can consume anything between 50MB RAM and whatever amount of RAM the machine has, depending on the pages the browser is displaying.
And Java isn't really resource friendly to begin with, and what resources it actually requires depends again solely on the applications used.
In other words: you need to pick some representative(!) users, let them work on a terminal server, and check what resources they're using.

To size your boxes correctly you need to look at how resource intensive the app is.
I currently have a farm of 24 citrix VM servers with 58 concurrent user on each and they are all using an app called SAP. Remember citrix do not charge per box only per user so you could add an extra box at any point to resolve performance issues.
