Intranet Web Site
This is a little off-topic;however....
I've just been tasked with setting up an Intranet Web Server for our company
and I need some help with "sizing" - I haven't been able to find any info on
this posted on the web anywhere.
Anyway, I want leverage my existing experience with Apache and Debian Linux,
so I'm thinking of putting the two together and coming up with a solution
that will cover what we need.
I need to setup a server that will handle approximately 100-200 concurrent
users accessing fairly typical web site information (mix of text and
Any ideas on what I can expect for typical data throughput per user? 100KB
If so, then I need a system that will support 200 x 100KB ==>
20,000KB/minute ==> ~350KB/s throughput.
With these numbers, I don't see network capacity as being a problem.
However, I have no idea what type of hardware I'm going to need to support
this. i.e. what might I require in the way of CPU, RAM, and Disk I/O?
I assume order of importance will be RAM, CPU, and finally Disk I/O, but
what quantity/quality of each will I require?
One other thing. I'm probably going to need Apache-SSL....
Any help you can provide would be much appreciated.
(BTW, I went to various Apache web sites and haven't been able to find any
of this information or mailing lists pertaining to the Apache Web Server.
Do you know of any?)
