How much traffic can my 1GB Linode handle (details of app included)
My app will execute a single PHP script, and most the functions performed will be simple MySQL queries. Either INSERT or SELECT. If for example an average user executes the script on my Linode 10 times a day how much traffic could the 1GB Linode handle? I've noticed in the recommended setup the apache2.conf is like so:
KeepAlive Off <ifmodule mpm_prefork_module="">StartServers 2 MinSpareServers 6 MaxSpareServers 12 MaxClients 30 MaxRequestsPerChild 3000</ifmodule>
I'm extremely new to server management, but with MaxClients set to 30 does that mean only 30 people can execute a query at the same time? Any pointers on all this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
How much traffic your server can handle is directly proportional to how efficient your MySQL queries are. Depending on exactly what those queries are, how much data is involved, and how well you optimize the database, the answer can be anywhere between 10,000 and 10,000,000 requests per day.
