    what are you looking to spend each month ?

    also what is the present ram / port switch on your machine ?

    am assuming you have 135 users and about 500 posts every day. If that is true, your daily traffic is just nuts ... unless you're hosting files for downloads (mp3's / torrents / video files)

    My stats are about as same as yours, I get 65 users during the slowest time of the day and about 190 during traffic times and posts are about 500 everday. I also host DJ mixes for downloads and have about 1000 GB of transfer each month.

    My present machine is a 3 GHZ P4 with Hyperthreading enabled and 1 GB of Ram on a 10MBIT port. Surf my site and see the performance of the box. My present load averages are 0.35 0.24 0.17

        in that case .... I stand corrected

        EDIT: 135,000 members and only 500,000 posts seems odd. Thats a heck of a lot of members and too few posts.

            Ross, how much are you looking to spend each month ? Additionally what software are you looking for (in the event you're looking for something in addition to the standard WHM / php / Apache / MySQL on Linux)

              It may be worth considering one server for HTTP and a second for MySQL.

                  You have two web hosts here in this thread with experience (at least I know that is true in my case) that are offering to help you. I was not chit chatting with you but rather offering a recommendation.

                  Good luck.

                        I just checked out your forum and your initial post was a little misleading. Yes you have ~135000 users, but that's TOTAL, not daily, which is how your initial post made it sound. And you have ~500000 posts, but again, total... We host a couple large forums, some with multiple servers and some with 1 server. Anywhere between 500-2500 users online at a time. I'll PM you the domain names and a price quote.

                          Try http://www.pair.com. They're pricey but well worth it IMHO, been in the business for over 10 years gotta say something. I've been with them for a year and very happy. No, I'm not affiliated with them in anyway.
