Additional servers included a mix of 25 ProLiant 8000/8500 servers with eight 700-MHz, 1-MB processors and 2 GB of memory for update/dialog, and a ProLiant 7000 server with four 500-MHz, 2-MB processors and 1 GB of memory for message and enqueue with the database server averaging 97 percent and the application servers averaging 66 percent CPU utilization. - Isaac Slepner
