Using this method, basic capacity planning and real-time evaluation of existing systems can be done with an acceptable degree of certainty. Provided the usage data, hardware, and network resources are available to test, TCA can also be used to anticipate changes in load and cost, and to determine where adjustments can be made in the name of either higher performance or lower financial impact.
