Don't know if its much use to you but we have small office (1/2 dozen people)
and we run postfix, plus a proxy for the internet (squid/squidguard) plus a
few other common applications (mysql, nfs export a few directories, apache)
all from a standard 2GHz AMD processor with 512MB and a couple of hard
drives. Everyone gets their home files from nfs. Its runs just fine. I know
its bad practice to run everything like this on one machine so don't bother
toast me for it! Here is the uptime taken from mid morning today...as you can
see its hardly moving and someone was running X and KDE on it at the time. I
have also seen a similar spec server installed in a factory/office to serve
about 25 users and another place that ran a similar setup from an AMD K6-500
with 256mb RAM for about 1/2 dozen people again. Basically you would get away
with an old 486 for just email and a firewall.

I have been asked to put together a sizing matrix for Linux Servers. Since I
only have experience on the Solaris and HP-UX, I dont have alot of
experience on the Linux PC Platform. So can anyone assist me please. I need
a rough guide for the following:
1. Small office Linux server to be used as an email and firewall server
2. A development server for porting applications from Solaris/HP-UX
3. High Database server (Oracle) to support up to 100 concurrent users.
Thanks and look forward to you advice.
