I have read several documents on the number of concurrent https sessions a FreeBSD system is capable of.
However, I wonder how well this relates to how many ssh sessions (scp file transfers, specifically) that a FreeBSD server can handle. Can anyone throw out some basic numbers for this ? Assuming a 1ghz p3 and 2gigs of RAM, and assuming that everyone is transferring a totally different file. (so there is no amount of cache hits - everything comes straight off the drives) I would think the major bottleneck would be disk - you would start chugging the disks far before you used up all the CPU on a 1ghz p3 ... but what is the second bottleneck ? Is it cpu, or is it ram (or mbufs, etc.) Would it be a reasonable test to just start up scp sessions from the machine to itself and then divide the number of sessions you can acceptably create by the number 2 ? Or is this somehow a flawed test ? Any additional comments (kernel tunes, settings, war stories) are greatly appreciated. __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!? Yahoo!
