To see how your system is performing in realtime, click the “Results Display” tab and move the “Update Frequency” slider above, right all the way to the left.

We assemble and deliver in Europe within 24 hours. Obviously a model is not the only determining factor in throughput, but it gives administrators a really good way to determine if performance is where it should be. Traffic on the current site is heavy and is expected to double in a year.
