Should I move my TeamForge database to its own server?

If you expect your site to have heavy user traffic, you may want to run the site's database on its own server.

Note: Before moving your database to its own server, make sure you have access to someone with advanced skills in the database service you are using.

The advantage of hosting a service on a separate server is that it does not share CPU, RAM or I/O bandwidth with the server that is hosting the main TeamForge application.

Note: Each TeamForge site can have only one database server.

To help decide whether you need a separate database server, consider these approximate values:

Shared TeamForge-database server Standalone database server
Daily users Fewer than 1000 More than 1000
Daily discussion forum entries Fewer than 1000 More than 1000
