Hey, folks -
Just wondering whether anyone has real experience of running Linux on a
4- or 8- way Xeon system. Any gotchas? Does performance scale well
with CPUs? The system in question is likely to be a high-performance
mail relay, running a carefully-tuned exim... I'm hoping that, given
enough CPU and RAM (say 4 Xeons and 4GB), I'll be able to handle
something like 80,000 emails per hour.
