Good call! If anyone hasn't noticed... RAM is at an all time low price
right now. You can get 256MB of server memory for around $150. I bought
256 for my new home PC for only $79 :) www.crucial.com has great quality
memory for just about everything.

For how many clients? Are you using the work around for the Progress
problem that plagued 4.0 last year? That modified some Progress parameters
so there was one server process per client connection. Below is a blurb I
saved from Epicor. There was also an -Ma (??) parameter that needed to be
set, but I don't see it mentioned.

Hello all,

My Vantage installation is running on a memory starved server with dual
processors. I have ordered and upgrade to 1Gig. In the meanwhile I would
like to keep things running as good as possible. When checking the
processes I noticed about twenty instances of _mproserv.exe were taking up
about 4Mb each. Is this normal?

Thanks!


Paul
