    My server is currently running LSWS Ent 1 CPU. And at peak server load go upto 15. ( dual CPU, Quad Core Xeon E5335).

    So i am thinking of upgrading CPU or LSWS license. So i wonder if upgrade LSWS would increase performance?( lower load)

    Since your load is caused by PHP/Mysql, upgrade to 2-CPU license may not help.

    You can use the trail key to give it a try.

    I already used Trial license on this server a year ago when i started using LSWS.

    Can i still use the trial now?

    AFAK, the trial can only be used once for each server.

    also, here is my server's load at peak. Would you think 2CPU license would help? i/owait is low.

    How did you get the iowait to be 0% with load of 12? :eek:

    Have you also looked into using noatime if you use linux type OS?
