Well, for *my specific application* they're inadequate. My
nameserver handles about 200 zones now, as well as some other services
like a Squid web cache. I want my web cache to have faster disk I/O
than 8-bit 10MHz SCSI can deliver. My nameserver is an AlphaStation
The way the services are distributed on my production machines,
there's no place for a sun4c box. I could redistribute that stuff to
make it more suitable for 4c machines, but instead I design the
network, then picked machines that were well-suited to the tasks...not
the other way around.
For someone running a small nameserver or something like that, a 4c
machine running a modern OS that's not Solaris really can't be beat.
