I have a dual zeon 3.06 GHz server, currently with 4 80 Gb SATA drives
connected to a MegaRaid 4 port raid controller set for raid 0. I have
currently 2 Gb of RAM.
Workstations are almost exclusively IBM 300PLs which are thin clients,
onboard video, sound, nic, etc
They are a little slow when 30+ workstations all load StarOffice 7 at
the same time, or when they log out.
I am planning on upgrading memory from 2 to 4 Gb, and increase the
backbone to Gb, but this upgrade will most likely not happen till
summer. In the mean time, is there anything I can do to increase
performance? Non of the workstations have hard drives, and their memory
is 96 Mb each. I have tried enabling swapfiles with not much
perceivable difference. What is the deal with running apps locally?
And how do I/Can I do it?
Enquiring minds want to know.
