I just bought an hp pavilian computer from best buy to use as a server. I have everything set up on it, and i am allowing my friend to use the server for ONE image that is displayed as a temporary picture for all of the people who are currently using www.sparkletags.com
You can see the image that i am talking about at www.myspace.com/eagletalontim
in the comments area. It says Site down Temporarily.... There are sooooo many people using this site, that when he set the hotlinking to on, and transfered the traffic to my server for that image to show as a replacement, my server memory usage is averaging 84% to 92%. The swap is not being used at all, and the cache is staying around 50% used.
Here are the specs to the server...
1 250 gig harddrive
1 100 gig harddrive
1 gig ram
AMD Athlon 64 X2 Processor
I am running Business Cable as my Internet at 8mb/s
here is what i have set...well at least know how to set on the server
swap -> 96 gig
apache -> unlimited connections
here is what is installed
-mysql 4. something
-somekind of bandwidth monitor tool that i cannot find out how to use :P
is there any possible way to allow more cache or use swap for ram or something? I need to make this server faster without buying more stuff!!!!!!
Any ideas would help!
