Let's see if I understand this right: you want to determine how powerful your server(s) need to be before starting to write your program?

If I had to make such a decision, I'd probably ask myself the following questions:

  1. What features does the program need? Heavy database applications can require lots of RAM/CPU.
  2. How many users do you expect to serve? Do you want to create a second Slashdot?
  3. What's the penalty for not serving your customers fast enough? Are they willing to wait, or is your application so mission-critical that you must acknowledge the request within a specified amount of time?
Based upon these (and perhaps more?) questions, I could deside what amount of servers I would need. Or at least, I could take this into account when designing my application!

Those few applications I've developed didn't require more than one server to give a reasonable response-time...

Hope this helps! Greets,

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
