I was wondering just how many containers I could create on a beefy host and how many processes the Linux kernel would be happy running so I decided to do an experiment.
I have two OpenVZ hosts... one is the primary and the other is a backup. Both of them are HP Proliant DL380 Gen5 machines with dual, quad-core Xeon processors, 32GB of RAM, 32GB of swap, and a 600GB /vz partition. I decided to use the backup OpenVZ machine for the experiment.
