Hi Jay,


I can run 30 simultaneous downloads only for each server and it started
using disk swap already. Can we buy more RAM for the thumbnail
downloader servers which are on DCB3F? I tried to tell IT to collect the
extra RAM from the dead servers and upgrade those on DCB3F.
Unfornatelly, those black servers have 2 different kinds of memory slots
- 2 DDR slots and 2 DIMM slots, and you can only use either type, not
both. Currently we have 2x512MB DDR on them, so we will have to buy
2x1GB DDR.

We have 22 black server on that cabinet, so we will need 44x1GB DDR
memory. For your reference, 1GB DDR memory costs about $60 each.
