    Hi there, I have a couple of site in 1 dedicated server which get hundreds of tousand of unique visitors per day.

    The sites are static, no databases, no images (images are hosted in amazon s3)

    My problem is that I have big server with 8 cores cpu and 16 Gb RAM.

    And even after I upgraded RAM from 12 to 16 and optimzie the apache Im having problems that the sites load slow, do to saturated memory use.

    I need somebody that could help me optimizing this or telling me what should I do.

    Somobody with experience in huge traffic sites?

    Thanks
    Dan

    Just to throw my 2c in, for that sort of traffic volume with static sites would you not be best off looking at switching to litespeed or nginx.

    For static content nginx will likley be a winner for you, have a look at http://blog.webfaction.com/a-little-holiday-present for some comparative charts.

    Excerpt:

    "But here comes the best bit: because Nginx is event-based it doesn't need to spawn new processes or threads for each request, so its memory usage is very low. Throughout my benchmark it just sat at 2.5MB of memory while Apache was using a lot more:"

    In the example in the link nginx used around 94% less ram.

    Something is very off, no reason a static server that big should have any issues with those traffic levels. I would be happy to help if needed.
