Operating system name and version: Ununtu 10.10 or CentOS 5.5
Version of smsd: Latest
Name and model of a modem / phone: Option ICON 322
Interface: USB

I'm looking for some hardware specs on dedicated server. I would like to run SMS Server Tools 3, my website, mysql and PHP all on one server with about 30 GSM USB modems that will send and receive messages individually. I mean are we talking dual core processors and 2GB of RAM or something more powerful? I dont want the system to get bogged down where it takes 60 seconds for it to post back a text message.

Thanks in advance!!

SMSTools does not need resources very much, even when running with more than 30 modems.

If you keep more than 10000 files in the single directory, like incoming, the file system may become slow. After files are processed, they should be moved to another place, or deleted. If you save incoming messages to SQL database, those files usually are not needed anymore.

SQL database and www server will take most of the capacity. Generally taken, in serious business the best and most powerful server should be selected. Processor as fast as possible and memory more than enough. The server should have capacity after two or three years too, so now is not the time to save in any component.

Has this happened in tests, or is it just a chimera?

Well if thats the case then I would be better off keeping my website and database with a third party hosting company that manages my server with dual quad core xeon processors and 16gb of ram and then host my sms server on my own and just manage it myself because then i can have physical access to the modems and sim cards.

My test server right now:
ASUS NCLV-D server motherboard
Dual Xeon processors
2GB ECC Ram
2 (1) TB SATA hardrives running RAID 1
Dual gigabyte ethernet
Ubuntu Server 10.10
