[LDM #MIW-275261]: some questions on hardware configs for our LDM server



Greg,

What are the specs on your current system (#CPUs, #cores, amount of memory, 
type of disk, amount of disk). If your system is I/O bound, then the disk specs 
are particularly important.

Is the system being used to process data-products or simply relay them? If it's 
processing, then what's the mean CPU load?

We know what data you're getting and how much.

Can you send us the output of "ldmadmin plotmetrics"?
