I just recently went all out with the lint in my pockets and purchased a dedicated server using Centos6. A Xeon Quad Core 3.2ghz with 8GB RAM. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for optimizing it for performance, especially for it's primary function of hosting game servers and secondary function of hosting LAMP.
I guess to be more specific, with only SSH access (no remote desktop or such) is there anyway to OC the CPU, create a ramdrive, etc.. things you might do to make this puppy run better than it's stock setup. What processes at startup that need to be eliminated.. etc.
I've already shut of SELinux... its supposedly an important security feature, but to me it looked like all it did was eat up system resouces, and gave me hell trying to setup vsftp and LAMP with some vhosts. What's your opinion on SELinux for this application?
