300 Agents ( Web Server suggestion )

Postby gequiros » Thu Nov 16, 2017 10:28 pm

I was thinking of getting a:

Dual Intel Xeon X5650 2.66 GHZ Hex Core (12 cores or 24 threads)
32GB Ram DDR 3
1 SSD 60gb ( Not really needed for more )

Will this be good enough ?

Since all the power we need here will be mostly network and memory ( i guess ), so not sure if i am safe

With 40 agents that we got currently, memory max usage is 2gb, and CPU load is about 0,8

Am i safe with that hardware ?

That's overkill for web servers for VICIdial, and they don't scale like DB servers do. Web servers are fine as a single quad-core CPU with 8 GB RAM, and each one should be able to safely handle 200 agents before Apache runs out of ports, which is usually the limiting factor. You also can just keep adding more web servers as your capacity needs grow. Our 630-agent client has 5 webservers currently because they are planning to grow to 800 concurrent agents.

Have you guys consider using NGINX instead of apache ?

Thanks !@!!

Yes, we've considered it, even had a couple clients use it. It doesn't solve any problems over Apache, and it can't magically make Linux handle more ports either. And since machine load isn't really an issue with Apache, there's really no reason to use it over Apache.
