since 95% of our page views are dynamic, I'm not sure it would gain
much. The only thing I can think of there is serving all the images off
Our CPU load isn't too bad (dual Opteron 242 currently) since the
database is on a separate server, but there are still times that the
number of httpd processes are maxed out and the browser has to wait for
a connection. So the new hardware will be dual Opteron 270s (dual core)
so I have no worries about CPU load -- I'd just rather run 4-6GB rather
than 8-10GB of RAM.
But maybe the images on a separate server process are the answer ...
there are close to 10x as many requests for images as for pages. Mostly
small GIFs but also a lot of larger JPEGs. Need to give this idea some
thought as an alternative. Thanks!
