I haven't done any further testing since I got the loads to moderate
levels. Since that time, I've moved to testing out a P4 2.4Ghz with
HyperThreading, 2GB DDR 3200 RAM on 800mhz FSB. I didn't think it
would make this much difference, but my initial feeling from compiling
MySQL, Apache, PHP etc. is that this machine is going to handle the
loads better (or at least equal) to the old Solaris 8 machines on the
PIII. There's no easy scientific way for me to verify this, as the
loads are all based on current customer activity.

Can someone try this on RedHat Linux/jre1.5 or redhat linux/jdk1.6? U. George Java 4 08-11-2005 12:33 PM
