Re: Xeon vs. Opteron

I have now afew OpenLDAP servers who "just work". But I see that the most used slave node, keeps rather high load and the CPU usage is allmost constant at 99.9% in our openings hours.

The server is very responsive though...

But as I forsee that we will have more users soon quering against the servers, I want to upgrade the servers.

Then the question:

Which architecture is better for OpenLDAP: Xeon 3.6GHz or Opteron 2.6GHz?

Currently I use SLES9 on dual Xeon 2.8GHz.

There's nothing particular about OpenLDAP software in this regard. I suggest you read some of the many available articles comparing Opteron to Xeon, e.g. http://www.gamepc.com/labs/view_content.asp?id=paxville&page=1
