I have Samba running on FreeBSD as a dedicated file server, servicing
Windows pcs running a database application, on a Pentium 4 2GHZ 512MB RAM,
with a SCSI drive. The server's only job is to run Samba.
The boss is asking what kind of new box we could get. Looking in the price
range of 1-5K.
Should we get an Intel Xeon, or go to a different chip and maybe run
Will dual processors do me any good with Samba as the only significant
Thank you for any suggestions.
