What is the relationship between the number of channels running and the number of users. I'm assuming with 8 channels, hundreds of web users could be logged in, but how many can actively run database queries at the same time?
We continue to go around and around here with the number of channels to run on two or four cpu servers. We generally have less than 30 users logged in to any given database/site at a time.
I've mentioned the Foxweb guideline of 2 or 3 channels per cpu, but our systems group believes this would limit the number of active users to one per channel ( active meaning database requests, not just logged on ).
