Subject RE: [users@httpd] hardware for proxy
Date Tue, 09 Sep 2008 12:48:27 GMT
How active are the sites? How complicated is the "proxy" configuration? Are
the Proxies an SSL termination point?

Server uptime: 50 days 3 hours 56 minutes 39 seconds
Total accesses: 36316506 - Total Traffic: 1544.5 GB
CPU Usage: u468.16 s2336.35 cu0 cs0 - .0647% CPU load
8.38 requests/sec - 373.7 kB/second - 44.6 kB/request

Hardware:
  Virtual Machine with 1G of ram. Really isn't working hard at all

Overview:
-) 2 major backend applications
-) Generally load balanced between 2 backend web servers
-) rewriting is being done for the one application
-) the Proxy/Load Balancer is being used for SSL termination for one of the
major applications (the application is almost 100% SSL).

Each site is different and there are many variables.
