We often get asked what hardware is needed to run LON-CAPA. Here are 
some interesting statistics from the MSU production cluster:


Obviously, the server load does not directly follow the number of 
active users, it depends on exactly what these users are actively 
doing. It looks like it is pretty safe to have up to 200 active user 
sessions on the machines (dual processor, 4 GB RAM).
