Processor Speed

Mar 3, 2007

After reading a lot of good reviews on Softlayer around here, I was thinking about switching to them. They have some really good deals and I'm planning on getting one of their dual opterons, but I have a question about the processor speed in relation to database intense stuff (like a forum with a good number of users on at once, or a CMS).

I have the option of either going for a Dual Opteron 248 (2.2 gHz) or a 252 (2.6 gHz) which costs $50 more. My question: is the 252 really worth the extra money compared to the 248? All I have on my server is an IPB forum with 100-450+ users on at any given time, and a static site (soon to be converted to a CMS), and I'm thinking that RAM is more important than the processor for a database app like those (that, and hard drive speed). So I wanted to know if it would be better to go with the 248 and spend the money on more Ram and a SA SCSI 10k drive or two?

Which Processor

Jul 15, 2008

I have always used Intel processors. Maybe just out of habit but I always have.

AMD Dual-Core Opeteron 1216 2.40GHz


Intel Quad-Core Xeon 2.50GHz 2.66GHz

Both would have 4GB ram.

What is the actual performance differences between these two processors? The Intel is $80 more and just not sure if it really is worth it.

RAM Vs Processor - Who Wins

Jan 12, 2009

Hows everybody doing. I am hosting a small network of sites (between 5-10) on a dedicated server with HostGator. I have the Standard package which gives me 1024mb as far as RAM and a Dual-Core 3040 Xeon (Conroe) as a processor goes.

My sites run extremely slow on the front end and back end. The sites are blogs which you probably know are php heavy. Not to mention a few of the sites get a decent amount of traffic (Alexa rankings of around 50K). One of the less popular sites with not as much traffic is www(dot)abnormalstyle(dot)com ...You can see how slow this site loads, its on the same server as the other sites, just using a different IP account...

I am looking to upgrade my server. When i talked to HostGator support i got the answer i would expect. "Upgrade to the next package, which is more money".

I am wondering if i would advantage from just upgrading my ram, or going with a processor first. The thing is, if i want to get the next processor i have to defiantly go with the next HostGator package, due to the fact they cant just add a new processor. They can however add more Ram.

Below are some options, if you have the time feel free to leave your comments and pick one of the options below which you feel would best suit the network of Wordpress blog sites i am using.


Option 1 - Just upgrade RAM. There is no sense in going from a Dual-Core 3040 Xeon (Conroe) processor to just a Quad-Core 3210 Xeon (Kentsfield) processor, regardless of the ram, it will not make a major difference. ITS ALL ABOUT RAM!

Option 2 - Go for the next HostGator package which offers 4096mb Ram wise and Quad-Core 3210 Xeon (Kentsfield) processor wise. The Processor upgrade along with the RAM upgrade will be MUCH BETTER then just the ram upgrade itself in option 1.

Processor Affinity

Jan 9, 2007

I have a production windows 2003 server with 2 XEON processors. In task manager I see 4 processors: 0,1,2,3. I assume this is because these processors have hyperthreading. My question is how do I know which 2 of the 4 are the main processors. I have a service I only want to run on processor 2, which 2 would I select to do this? I really don't want to be experimenting as this is a live production server.

Which Processor? Q8200 Vs Q6600

May 4, 2009

Planning on getting a new dedicated server with 4GB RAM, and a 500GB 7.2k SATA2 Hard Drive.

Which processor do you guys suggest? I know the Q6600 is older and runs hotter, but it has better specs than the Q8200. Would I really notice a difference if I'm only hosting static sites without any video streaming or anything?

Q6600 Processor Vs. Q9400

Aug 22, 2008

I have read benchmark comparisons and found the Q9400 and even the Q9300 to be a better performing processor compared to the Q6600 processor, even with 2MB less L2 cache.

I am just wondering, how significant of a difference do you think the Q6600 processor and the Q9400 processor is in a server environment? Currently I have a Q6600 processor but am looking to upgrade my server, possibly to the Q9400 processor..will it be worth it? It's not that much more expensive..the only thing I am concerned about is the 2mb L2 cache loss.

My site is "kind-of" high traffic. We receive a lot of connections and visitors, and most-importantly my sites are run by PHP and MySQL databases.

Please help me choose the right processor. Currently I have 4GB DDR2-800mhz installed, which I will be upgrading to 8GB DDR2-800mhz, no matter what processor I choose to run.

I discovered that upgrading to 1ghz RAM is just not worth the extra money because the performance gain is very little and not noticeable.

Would anyone possibly know of a Intel Quad Core processor that has 8mb or more of L2 cache, 1333mhz FSB, and is comparable to the processors listed above and relatively the same in price?

TOP On Dual Processor Server

Sep 4, 2007

I have a dual processor server and today I was monitoring CPU usage using the ‘top’ command

There was a mysql process I was tweaking around with where the CPU % kept jumping over 100%.. It went up to 155%, 175%, 180% on numerous occasions.

My question is on a dual processor machine does ‘top’ measure CPU usage between 0% and 200% or does the usages I saw earlier mean my server was getting REALLY overloaded?

Microsoft SQL Processor License Vs CALs

May 30, 2009

One Webhost is offering MS SQL 2005 Standard Edition (Processor Licence) for US$385 per month.

Another webhost is offering MS SQL 2005 Standard Edition with 5 CALs for US$35 per month.

The first webhost says CALs are not available and that:
"A Processor License is required for running a Web server that is open to public access. Using CALs may put you in question from Microsoft's legal point of view if the inappropriate license is applied."

Only 3 people have access to the server and the website, I think, is very standard.

Our org does not wish to do anything illegal. Which one is most appropriate? The price differences are very large.

I've had a look here:

Server Processor/Virtual Rack

Oct 14, 2008

I am trying to decide to run my heavy database community site over at a new host but am looking to create a good package customed for high bandwidth.

I can decide from going with ONE Dual Quad-Core 2.0 Processor(4 gigs of ram) or TWO Intel Xeon 3210 2.1 GHz Quad Core Processor servers(4 gigs of ram each) with a Virtual Rack Container.

With having both the lower servers on the virtual rack, will the site manage with the same power as the Dual Quad Core since it is on a rack?

Supermicro 6015B-3V Detects Only 1 Physical Processor

Jun 8, 2007

I just built a new server using [url]and two Intel xeon 5345 clovertown processors.

When the server boots up the BIOS detects only 1 physical processor with 4 cores and also the OS detects the same.

Couple of things I already tried to solve the problem:
A. Upgraded the BIOS to the latest available release date of 05/30/07

B. I swapped the processors in the motherboard sockets to rule out that one of the processors was not working.

how to troubleshoot.

Speed- At FDC ( Speed Tests )

Sep 14, 2007

I am having some serious speed issues with my 1Gbit server at FDC. After opening a ticket, they've simply dismissed it as a server configuration problem. However I am convinced it isn't because certain ISP's (usually universities) get good speeds, usually 700kb/sec but the vast majority of my users get between 20-50 kb/sec and it's causing a lot of complaints.

Furthermore I have other servers with FDC which are 100mbit which perform better than my 1 Gbit one. There are no server bottlenecks (CPU/RAM/HDD), since I've closely monitored them (PRTG) and they aren't even heavily utilised. So the problem is with the network at some point.

where abouts you are downloading from, your ISP and net connection. Wget's from servers are also welcome as are traceroutes.
