Hi, I run my server in a Xeon E3 1240 v2 processor and it have this 3 configurations. 1) 4 cores at 3.6 Ghz each 2) 3 cores at 3.7 Ghz each 3) 2 cores at 3.8 Ghz each Currently i'm using option 3). I had take a look on more expensive Xeon processors, and most of it have Ghz slower than 3.8 (a lot slower!) but on the other hand they have more cores and more cache memory (a lot more!). I feel stuck, since Ghz is the most inportant factor, i can't find nothing considerable better than 3.8 Ghz. You guys know if more cache memory (15, 20 or even 35 mb!) can increase significantly the Epoch server performance? Those very expensive Xeon processors with 2.5 Ghz, 3.0 Ghz or 2.0 Ghz and more cache memory are a way to go? Thankyou!
Hi, I am currently spec'ing up the hardware for an Epoch server. It will be Intel 55xx/56xx processor based (HP DL380 G6 I already have knocking around). What is the max cores / threads ARMA II / Epoch can utilize ?. I am looking at either dual X5570s (4 core) or X5650s (6 core). More slightly slower cores or less faster cores ?. From reading here I see someone mentioned that server instances are limited to 2GB ram, so ram is not really an issue in the server spec. For storage, What sort of size does the DB storage need and what sort of growth rate are people seeing ?. Anyone running MySQL on a ram disk ?. The server will take 48GB ram pretty cheaply so have 12GB for OS and application and 30GB as ramdisk with master slave replication to a second MySQL instance on a fast SSD array may be interesting. UPS will be a must. I am potentially looking at putting in a 1Gbit fibre connection so that will cover connectivity. Any other advice / suggestions ?. Thanks
