What would happen if set too small or too large?

Sorry, forgot to mention: 1 thread per appserver.
Otherwise there's not much use in haproxy's load balancing we figured.

Meory usage as reported by munin is avg. 160M, max ~220M
and backend loads/stores are about 1000/10 a minute avg. 
and iowait at 45% avg today.
committed memory 3.7G avg.

This little oneliner for summing VSZ:
ps auxf | grep zope | awk  '{total+=$5} END{print total}'
reports: 
1918552 for zope
1489768 for varnish
2270732 for www-data

And for RSS
1375908 zope
 177200 varnsih
 374624 www-data


in addition to the 9, that includes one appserver with 6 therads/60000
obs and one with 1 therad/20000 for developers and robots respectively.

Problem is we run out of them way to often now, and get 503's from
haproxy. I just added another 3 in fact..

Perhaps I'll try with 6 tomorrow..


Thanks :)
