Hardware recommendation?

Thu Oct 21, 2004 2:25 am

I've been using AMD lately... and I'm looking for 1U solutions for MT Boxes and I decided to go with 1U barebone Supermicro 5013C-M.

Here's my questions:
What is the recommeneded or minimum required pentium 4 CPU to handle 1,000 users with intensive bandwidth queuing and firewalling? Is Pentium 4 2.8Ghz 533Mhz+512k cache going to be enough? Will there be a high cpu load usage?

What is the minimum required RAM to handle 1K users similar to above?

What is the minimum required P4 CPU to handle approx. 200-300 users?

Please let me your advice or recommendation. Thanks.

I've got a 1.7GHz P4 that's happily providing for around 1000 pppoe connections with firewall+queuing, hardly any usage.
