[THIN] Re: Sizing NFuse server

I run Dual 1.4's with 2 gb each.  These sit behind f-5 Big IP
controllers, and are all scaled to 1000 per. We have an extra one in
each site that is hot, and pulled it out for a week to ensure that we
could handle the load at 1K per server. No probs.

1000 per server looks a bit high -- in the morning logins will come in
at=20
the same time, so I will lower this number and use 3 load balanced boxes
for=20
the same number of users, which will add additional redundancy.

I would rather have 2-CPU boxes -- 2x800MHz will work better as compared
to=20
1x1600MHz in your scenario. RAM looks OK, you can probably go lower, but
1GB=20
is good.
