20 Lotus Notes client running parallel, can linux handle that?
I am trying to replace a Citrix server with a linux solution:
The problem is that 20 machines (AIX) cannot run a Lotus Notes client, but would need to have one.
This is my idea:
Have a Linux server (RH9 or else) with about 1.5gbyte of ram, 2.8 gherz of cpu.
Have 20 users on it, with eachone has a copy of Lotus Notes installed in Crossoffice. They access the whole thing over the network and using X.
Every Notes Clients will eat about 60 megs of ram I guess..
Question: can Linux handle that or is there a problem with threading? Can it be scaled to big?
Are the hardware specs what I need or would there be more requirement?
Will this fly?
Any pointers welcome
