I would like to ask a question of everyone in the group - how do you
spec a server for your specific needs. I know there are sites like
http://www.spec.org/ and http://www.tpc.org/, but these simply provide
a basic guideline. What I would really like to know is how do you get
to the "nitty gritty" of the figuring out which server fits your
needs. A Database server will certainly be different than a web
server of NFS server. Are there any tools out there? How do the Sun
account reps do it? Do they have a matrix, or something? Any help
would be appreciated.
