We definitely have a problem if Access97 can handle 6000 users on
100MHz/64mb Ram and SQL is going to take a Quad-Proc PPRO 200/2gig %).
We have segmented the network using the router as a bridge. One class C
handles the portmaster LAN, and the other class C handles the local LAN
(mail, news, etc.) Network utilization on the Portmaster LAN is averaging
15%. Utilization on the Local LAN is 4-12%. In about 20 minutes, a
10/100mbps switched hub should be at my doorstep. (Hey - we got it for
$4k..I couldn't pass it up!)
I'm going to take the advice on the memory - we'll be up to 128mb on
Monday and set up SQL to take advantage of it.
Thanks for all the info, folks...any further ideas are appreciated!
