Concurrent Users means the number of Users logged in and active (i.e., performing at least one operation) in the Production Environment of AEM Sites or AEM Forms, as applicable, within the same thirty-minute time period.

If the number of Concurrent Users at any point exceeds the number of Concurrent Users specified in the description of AEM Sites or AEM Forms, or Customer’s average User-driven load placed on the Production Environment exceeds Adobe’s pre-scoped average, Customer may experience performance limitations during authoring activity. If Customer’s average User-driven load placed on the Production Environment is less than Adobe’s pre-scoped average, Customers’ AEM Sites or AEM Forms deployment may support more than the specified number of Concurrent Users (as detailed in the description AEM Sites and AEM Forms).
