    Connected users defines the maximum number of users who may be connected to Toad Intelligence Central at the same time.

    Active users defines the number of connected users who may be executing queries or publishing objects at the same time.

    Logical processors
    defines the number of sockets multiplied by the number of cores.

    Program data/Toad Intelligence Central
    stores user information, data source connection information and mappings, snapshots and datasets. The location of this folder is defined when Toad Intelligence Central is installed. The default location for the folder is \ProgramData\Dell\Toad Intelligence Central\.

    Tip: For higher numbers of active users, disk performance (on ProgramData\Dell\Toad Intelligence Central\) will improve significantly if the data is striped across multiple spindles to enable concurrent I/O operations. This is especially true when Toad Intelligence Central snapshots or data sets are heavily used.
