that would depend a lot on how many at one time, if the hits are equally 
spread across the day, then lower min / max would be fine, if they all 
come in, in a short time, then higher min / max would be needed.

I have 3 sites runnig on one server, and they are pulling in between 
them around 3 thousand hits a day, since they are only for freely 
downloading 3d meshes and associated addons for one app, the site owners 
are doing thier own advertising, the hit count, in my situation right 
now, doesn't really matter.
