New powerful server!
We just migrated to a new, more powerful dedicated server, hosted by hetzner.de. Some of the technical details are:
- AMD Athlon 64 3700 with 1 GB DDR400 RAM and 2GB of swap
- minimal bandwidth is 10 MBit/s
- chosen distro is: Ubuntu 6.06 minimal for amd64 architecture
Local testing with ab -n 1000 -c 5 http://polishlinux.org/ gave the following results:
Concurrency Level: 5
Time taken for tests: 4.336209 seconds
Complete requests: 1000
Failed requests: 0
Write errors: 0
Total transferred: 25198098 bytes
HTML transferred: 25015734 bytes
Requests per second: 230.62 [#/sec] (mean)
Time per request: 21.681 [ms] (mean)
Time per request: 4.336 [ms] (mean, across all concurrent requests)
Transfer rate: 5674.77 [Kbytes/sec] received
So this basically means it's pretty powerful, compared to the demand.
Please go through the pages of PolishLinux.org and let me know if you see any performance improvement (or loss?). Perhaps some Apache settings may need to be fine-tuned, yet.
