comment Minimum requirements seem to much for a 32 bit application
Just little things like the phrase "in a few hours".

comment Minimum requirements seem to much for a 32 bit application
By the way, these "requirements" seem very suspicious. It is very unusual, for example, to require a specific number of cores. And the wording seems awfully haphazard. I would doubt that these "requirements" are reliable indications of what the application requires.

comment Understanding virtual memory usage > swap + physical on Linux
This is totally confused. Overcommit is not what lets you allocate more virtual memory than physical memory plus swap space. You could do that even without overcommit. (For example, on a machine with 2GB of RAM, no swap, and no overcommit, you can still memory map a 4GB file read only, using 4GB of virtual memory.)

comment 80% memory utilization on server- is this just caching?
Is this a virtual machine or is this running on bare metal?

comment Cascade 2 routers with dhcp
It's all one LAN. The DHCP server will serve the LAN. You're using the routers as bridges, they don't care whether the traffic they're bridging is DHCP or not.

comment Cascade 2 routers with dhcp
"Since this in in a house, I cold have several guests over so it wont be very user-friendly if they have to give their devices a satic ip, especially since they may not even know what an ip is. Thats why its important to try and keep DHCP on all routers." That makes absolutely no sense. It's one LAN.

comment Cascade 2 routers with dhcp
"The second issue is I'd like both routers, which also provide wireless, to have a shared SSID so that moving from one part of the house to the other doesnt mean having to switch SSID's or devices flipping back and fourth on different SSID's." Why is that an "issue"? If you want them to have the same SSID, just set the same SSID on them both. What's the issue exactly?

comment Cascade 2 routers with dhcp
"I still need DHCP on both routers." Why? You don't explain what your issue is.

comment Distributing Internet equally among several users
"So I want to distribute the internet bandwidth among the clients equally which guarantees a minimum of 160Kb upto 1Mbit." That assumes that what needs to be shared is bandwidth. But people care an awful lot about latency too. A "perfectly fair" distribution of bandwidth might be perfectly fair to the people using torrenting downloaders, but a person trying to play games will be awfully unhappy.

comment how to check how much memory take process
@maihabunash For one thing, you show clearly that you know that there are two kinds of memory. But then you ask about "how much memory a process holds", which suggests you don't understand that there isn't just one resource that can be described as "memory".

comment Point www and naked domain to other server
Yes. It can also become a CNAME record to the name of the machine that will house the main web server.

comment Point www and naked domain to other server
@Engerlost Yeah. Probably what you want to do is move the www subdomain. Then run a web server on the machine the domain points to just to redirect people who access the named domain to the www subdomain.

comment Point www and naked domain to other server
@Engerlost Okay, so then you asked completely the wrong question. You don't want to move a subdomain, you want to move a web site.

Sounds like window tuning is restricted.

comment How does the DNS protocol switch from UDP to TCP?
An obvious example would be if a previous request for the same record was too long to fit in a UDP datagram.

comment Which standard defines CAT6?
@JurGroen I wouldn't assume that 10GE will work unless the cable is certified category 6. There are tight tolerances for insertion loss, twisting, and so on.

comment Can TCP be used like UDP by simply not sending ACK?
This wouldn't emulate any of the functionality of UDP as far as I can tell. It wouldn't be connectionless. It wouldn't eliminate all the TCP stuff UDP doesn't want like slow start, exponential backoff, and so on. It wouldn't give you a datagram service.

comment Limit CPU / Mem usage for certain processes?
Yes, exactly. The people who wrote your OS understand these common use cases and the scheduler can easily tell the difference between interactive processes that wait for things to happen and then need to respond to them quickly and background processes that need a lot of resources but in exchange must yield to latency-sensitive things. (And how would having the server under load for twice as long help? Wasting 50% of the CPU most of the time doesn't help anybody!)
