You have a much busier site then we are currently running. I don't have a
clue what our requests/sec are (apart from what server-status provides)
during any given time. The concurrent requests seem to peak out at about 120
split roughly 50/50 between the two major applications (which means about
35-45% are SSL) and the box doesn't have any issues and is (per vmstat --
forgot to mention it is a RHEL VM) 10-15% non-idle (user + sys + io wait =
10-15% usage). Currently, our proxy is performing some DNS lookups (DNS
isn't on the box its self) do to how some of the access restrictions are
done. I would assume that removing those would also lessen CPU usage.
