You're right, it is hard to gauge. If you allow file uploads and expect this to be used extensively, then your estimate will need to be higher, perhaps considerably. If you don't allow files to be uploaded and/or you don't expect this to be used much, then this estimate is probably correct.

Did I mention these folks are Great at helping a fella out with the tech aspects of this board? Well, in my experience, they do !!!

File Uploads..yes, that's the majority of the space in my DB, because we do alot of PC pix shots, and the like...As smachol said, plan accordingly....


I allocated 120GB of HDD to the Server(AMD 1.2Ghz/KT7A/1.256GB PC150 memory) I built to house the forum, and one of the few benefits of business DSL accounts, is that there is no limits on 'how' much is transacted each month, just that 'sizeable' payment....

But that all depends on your cost models, and support requirements for your forum. Since I tend to spend every waking moment with mainframes or PC's, this works fo me.

I didn't know RAM came in PC150. I'm looking at a ComputerEdge magazine right now, and I can't find any at that speed. Closest I can find is PC133 SDRAM or 266MHz DDR RAM.

Anyway, 1.256GB is quite a bit.

Yup, PC150 SDRAM, I've the receipt about here somewhere, pretty sure it's kingston. I would like to move it to one of my machines that has DDR memory, but I just hate fooling with things that are working already.

As for the 1Gb+ of memory, that's what a lot of folks told me that I would need, so when I built the forum server, I just went ahead, and planned for it then...My credit cards knew...

As for the sea of HDD space, I just figured more is always better than less, or at least it works that way in the mainframes...

I've included a small gif (52k) that shows where I shop for stuff, www.pricewatch.com . They have a summary of all suppliers across america, and yes, with some, one must be careful of, but it's a quick, easy way to see what stuff is selling for...any computer hardware, and a number of other tings, as well...Enjoy

Most users ever online on a day was 711 on 02-02-2002.

Only using 45 MB disk on server and bandwidth has yet to be an issue for us.

Can I play?

2 separate sites, 2 separate VB's:

Commercial Site: Members: 3,166, Threads: 10,453, Posts: 52,932
Not entirely sure of the stats yet because it's only been up a couple weeks.

Personal Site: Members: 113, Threads: 3,646, Posts: 24,320

And I'll 2nd bitbender on the tech support. These guys know their stuff.

pruned twice this month, we are at:

Members: 8,592, Threads: 24,558, Posts: 121,835

We are on a colo machine, dual PIII 933 w/ 1GB of PC133

Bandwidth is more of an issue than server speed, we average 30% idle on each proc, but are currently maxing out our 1 MBPS line over 40% of the day.

Attachments are disabled, and board image files have been custom constructed to allow an average of 500-600 bytes per image.

See Eva's info on limiting bandwidth.....you will more than likely run into big $$ there before you run into server slow downs.

My board is so active that it chews up over 2 GIGS of bandwidth a DAY. Takes up 27 megs of hd space.

I've been running VB for about a week and like it a lot!

do a search for any post by eva2000 and you will see lots of stuff in his signature worth reading

Eva is my hero *grinz*

Well...he is my third favorite hero. PPN is my favorite hero, because he does awesome work for me from time to time (When he isn't too busy that is, hence me having to find someone else for the big stuff!!!) FireFly is my second, cause he writes the majority of the hacks I find useful.

Alanis is my fifth, because she makes such incredible music, and after that, it all gets fuzzy....but surely Steven King, Anne Rice, and Dean Koontz belong somewhere in the mix.....who knows?
