So we are going to be putting up an in-house external web server (Windows 2003) soon. We have a server and are looking into the pipe coming in. Where do we start to determine the size of the pipe? There is the obvious (number of hits * size of pages), but what other factors do we need to take into account? We expect a heavy server load initially with the announcement and would like to not have it crash the first day. Also, I don't know the full stats on the server, but we are delivering ASP.NET pages (via a cached source). We have 2GB of RAM and I would guess a dual CPU of some sort. What do you think?
