    How many pageviews for a Celeron Server

    I have a 2.4 Celeron with 512 MB Ram, running Redhat 9 running just my personal sites, I wanted to know how much more load can it take easily.

    Its currently serves about 85,000 pageviews per day about 270,000 Server hits daily, which transalates to about 1.4 GB of data transfer/day 85% of my pages are running PHP & Mysql based

    At peaks the load is about .012 - .015

    up 27 days, 13:37, 0 users, load average: 0.15, 0.06, 0.07
    64 processes: 63 sleeping, 1 running, 0 zombie, 0 stopped
    Mem: 514196k av, 478816k used, 35380k free, 0k shrd, 135280k buff
    275784k active, 106888k inactive
    Swap: 2104504k av, 2124k used, 2102380k free 201376k cached



    Http processes currently running = 22
    Mysql processes currently running = 3

    Netstat information summary
    2 ESTABLISHED
    3 FIN_WAIT2
    3 SYN_RECV
    4 FIN_WAIT1
    11 LISTEN
    123 TIME_WAIT


    MySQL info

    Uptime (9 days 19 hrs 48 mins 5 secs)

    Key Reads/Key Read Requests = 0.000006 (Cache hit = 99.999994%)
    Key Writes/Key Write Requests = 0.999111
    Connections/second = 0.686 (/hour = 2469.676)
    KB received/second = 0.509 (/hour = 1834.082)
    KB sent/second = 2.470 (/hour = 8893.718)
    Temporary Tables Created/second = 0.000 (/hour = 0.000)
    Opened Tables/second = 0.000 (/hour = 0.301)
    Slow Queries/second = 0.000 (/hour = 0.000)
    % of slow queries = 0.000%
    Queries/second = 8.044 (/hour = 28959.058)


    So how many more pageviews can it take without any performance hits!

    up 27 days, wow! Would you please share your Apache settings.

    It all depends upon the kind of pages you are serving. I run a forum that takes up a Dual XEON to serve 2,00,000 pages a day. Its a poorly coded phpBB forum.

    Your machine , if it were to just serve basic webpages, you can easily serve more than a million pages a day. It all depends on the kind of data being served

    Dynamic - high loads - less pages
    Static - low loads - high amount of pages.

    Imago that 27 is the server up time (Its a new server never rebooted it till date), I restarted apache at the same time I did Mysql about 9 days back.

    Allwin A 85% of my pages are dynamic in nature using MySQL but all the coding is done by me, I am fairly good in PHP so all the PHP code is optimized, most of the dynamic pages size is between 16-22 KB in size.

    Then you should be able to serve half a million pages a day. But I'd suggest going for a server grade P4 and 1 Gig RAM when you can afford it. Celeron is not really a server grade proc.

    Cheers,

    I think that even more than half a million. I think ten times more pageviews than you have now...

    Wow half a million will be more than enough for me, I just have one more question, I have seen webhost / webmasters overloding there servers load to 2-4% CPU usage for a P4/Xeon machines and it works fine, what do you thing is the maximum load a Celeron processors could take without performance issues.

    I have the same kind of box I think, but instead of redhat I have debian. And i've upgraded to kernel 2.4.26

    These are my mysql-stats:
    Key Reads/Key Read Requests = 0.000576 (Cache hit = 99.999424%)
    Key Writes/Key Write Requests = 0.009633
    Connections/second = 0.215 (/hour = 774.713)
    KB received/second = 0.915 (/hour = 3295.292)
    KB sent/second = 12.781 (/hour = 46010.726)
    Temporary Tables Created/second = 0.187 (/hour = 671.975)
    Opened Tables/second = 0.013 (/hour = 47.459)
    Slow Queries/second = 0.000 (/hour = 0.000)
    % of slow queries = 0.000%
    Queries/second = 8.880 (/hour = 31969.499)
    MySQL Query Cache hits = 103485/168008(62%)0


    Serves about 300.000 hits per day too.

    Your cache-stats are good, but i think you should do something about the key-writes/ratio


    Anyway, if you really wanna know, you can always do a benchmark test like httperf on the index of your site. I did one for fun before I actually let my server go live. It should be able to take 200 hits per second without the server crumbling (mysql and apache will not respond much more though)
