yap, time for some hardware showoff :P is running at a dual 3ghz xeon setup using 4gb ram.
(in fact it IS a HP/Compaq DL380)

our diskspace is 4tb on an external transtec ata<->u320scsi array using raid5.
this array is running at xfs with some individually tuned parameters.

we are using suse 9.1, running a suse-out-of-the-box 2.4.21-243-smp4G
but we will soon switch over to a brand new DL380 with dual 3,4ghz with sles9.
(we switch, cause the current server will be a dedicated rsync frontend)

as you can see at
we constantly run under pretty nice load having total traffic of about 29 TB last month.
(gentoo was about 4 TB last month).
our outbound connection is currently 1gig.

we are using apache2 with mpm-worker for http-service, which performed great during
the firefox-burn-in (at over 1300 threads with load 30 at ~600mbit avg output).
ftp service is currently done by pureftpd, cause we need some features of it, that
vsftpd does not provide.
thats bad, cause vsftpd is supposed to do a better job than vsftpd.

if you need specific setup parameters, feel free to contact me.

hope this helps.
