[mapguide-users] Server Sizing

I don't know if anyone has done enough work to be able to help much with
I have seen pretty good performance on machines similar to your
configuration, but have not done any load testing yet.
Are the 200 users concurrent and, if so, what kind of query frequency do
you think you will be seeing?
If load is your primary concern you may see better distribution by
placing the web and site services on one server, and putting one or more
of the higher-load support services (rendering? - depends on your client
choice and application requirements) on the second server.  1Gb seems a
bit small for a dual-cpu server, considering that memory is cheap these
days.  I haven't benchmarked MapGuide's memory requirements though and
don't know whether it would take advantage of additional amounts.
A recent post mentioned that having the web extensions and site server
on different machines has not been thoroughly tested yet, but this is a
fresh product, so that's to be expected.

This might not be the right forum for this, but I thought I would ask.


Does anyone have recommendations or experience on server sizing and
configuration with MapGuide OS?  I realize the size of the data and
number of users play into the mix when deciding servers.  We are looking
into doing a proof of concept application and plan to use Windows
2003/IIS 6 with .NET.  We currently have about 1gig+ worth of shape/data
files in our current application. 


Our company's standard server is a 3.2 Ghz dual processor with 1 gb ram.
We planned on getting 2 servers one as a Web Server and one to share the
Site server/Support Server functions.  This would be an Intranet app
with about 200 users.  Does this sound like a reasonable start?


Any info would be appreciated.  Thanks
