Or perhaps I should try to get a PC just for the DBs. Consider used or obsolete equipment, perhaps in parallel (distributed), and probably dedicated to the task. If the x86's on Linux are really that much better at running MySQL, then you should be able to use a relatively puny x86 machine and get performance comparable to or even exceeding what you're fretting about now with your G3. Then the bottleneck might become ethernet saturation. First, though, I strongly suggest making your own measurements yourself, on your own. The anandtech article used a G5 and 10.4 and gobs of RAM, while you're using a G3 and 10.2 and unspecified amounts of RAM. Worlds apart in hardware and software, so a bit premature to become alarmed over the anandtech article alone. If you need speed, you have to pay for it, either with time or with cash. If you choose to pay with time, you can always change your mind later and pay with cash. It all depends on why you need the speed, whether you can afford the time, and what your ROI expectations are. -- GG _______________________________________________ Do not post admin requests to the list.
