I am currently running a 510 with 512Mg of memory, 60 Gig DASD and 2143
processor.  At most, I have about 50 users on at the same time.  Lately,
some of my power users are running a number of resource intensive batch
jobs at the same time.  My quetion is:  What is the best was to upgrade
in order to get the most bang for the bubk.  Do I throw in another
processor (bringing me to 2 out of a total possible 4).  Or do I throw
more memory into the system.  I have heard that RISC is really greedy
when it comes to memory.  How can I test my system to see which is the
best option?
