A license restriction limits us to 2 x dual core servers, or one 1 x quad core server.
Should we see better performance running 2 x Dual Core servers or 1 x Quad Core?
Dual Core processors are harder to find now. Which would give best performance?
EDIT Thanks for the responses. The application runs Tomcat Java and performs XSL/XML transformations. Would there be core to core communications on a Tomcat, or is each request handled in a single thread/core? The servers we have at the moment are both Dual Core Xeon E3113 3GHz
EDIT The application handles a considerable amount of XML throughput which is a memory, CPU, and network intensive task. Under the hood it uses a combination of DOM, XPath and Xerces.
