Depends entirely on what type of workload the server's doing. Some
applications are memory hogs, some CPU intensive, some disk-intensive,
some consume bandwidth like it's going out of style. Some don't scale
well on SMP systems, some are tough to spread across a cluster
(*cough* CIFS *cough*). Most are combinations of a few of these.
