I am hosting a big campaign that is going to launch tomorrow. The expected avg. number of visits on the first day is +200 000 users. Assuming everyone is going to visit 5 pages on avg., this makes 1 000 000 views x 20 static files, 20 000 000 requested.
The server I am using is:
Processor: Intel Core i5-2400 4x3.1+ GHz 6 MB L2 - QPI 5 GT/sec Virtualisation: VT Instructions Turbo Boost Technology: @ 3.40GHz Architecture: 64 bits RAM: 16 GB DDR3 Hard disk: Intel SSD 320 (2x 120 GB) RAID: SOFT 0/1 NIC: FastEthernet SwitchPort: 100 Mbps
The script itself doesn't involve many MySQL requests or complex PHP operations. Using HTTP server.
Should I upgrade my server or should this be enough to handle the traffic?
