I believe that will open around 30 tickets a day and 10
simultaneous users in the system.

That’s a pretty lightly-loaded web server.

I would guess you could get away with a cheap Intel server, at least
1GHz and 512MB. You could also get away with software mirroring which
would save you from a drive failure.

A server-class machine (e.g. HP ML150, around $1300) would be great,
but if you have a tight budget you could go with a PC-class machine.

I run a system that right now has about 10 users, not concurrent,
and just a few tickets modifed each day, it is running on a 500Mhz
k6-2 box with 256MB of ram. I am guessing I could handle quite a bit
than that on this box and only have problems with heavy duty searches.

My guess is that a low end system would handle most any internal
need… it is the ones that allow ther general public to interact
with them that need to go high end.On Thu, Jun 30, 2005 at 04:44:15PM -0300, Rodrigo Blanco wrote:
