How many cases can a phone handle?

Hi

I am using Commcare in a slightly unorthodox way, whereby each beneficiary
in my program is a case. Ideally all beneficiaries are treated as the same
case type and therefore will go in a single module all together. Case
sharing will need to be used, as all field staff need to be able to updated
any of the cases. Eventually there are likely to be up to 6,000
beneficiaries/cases. My question is how many cases can realistically be
handled by a phone (although I realise it depends on how much info. is
saved as case detail). With, say a 16 GB SD card, does anyone have any
guidance on roughly how many cases per phone is practical? Are we talking
tens, hundreds or thousands?

Many thanks!

Hi John,
Take a look at:
https://confluence.dimagi.com/display/commcarepublic/Case+Loads+on+CommCare
In general, if you’re trying to display 6000 cases in one case list, your
case list will likely take more time to load than is reasonable. You can
improve the performance by using a parent-child hierarchy. You should
load-test your app with the expected case load using the case importer
(available on the standard plan).

Thank you both. Derek, do you need a different account from the HQ one to

Thanks

Also, you should expect syncs to frequently time out at this volume. We are
working on better sync tolerance for large case loads, but right now we
rely primarily on caching (which means you may have to sync many times in a
row before getting the latest data).

Hi John,

Sorry about that - I just fixed the page to make it viewable without any
account.
