We're preparing to purchase an X4170M2 as an upgrade for our existing
X4100M2 server for ZFS, NFS, and iSCSI. We have a choice for CPU, some
more expensive than others. Our current system has a dual-core 1.8Ghz
Opteron 2210 CPU with 8GB. Seems like either a 6-core Intel E5649
2.53Ghz CPU or 4-core Intel E5620 2.4Ghz CPU would be more than
enough. Based on what we're using the system for, it should be more
I/O bound than CPU bound. We are doing compression in ZFS but that
shouldn't be too CPU intensive. Seems we should be caring more about
more cores than high Ghz.
