OOoForum is sustaining about 3 transactions per second in the heavy hours, generating over 6 Gbytes of traffic per day, and has a database of around 400 Mbytes. This is quite a profile guys. Heavier than I had anticipated until I cranked the numbers.

Next is an analysis of the spread of posting. Here I have analyses posts per poster, then ranked by totals per poster and grouped these into bands.
From this you can see that the view transactions in fact dominate, with there being around 130 views for every post. This is partly the fact that many of use preview and view in preparing a post, but also there is a huge body of "read-only" guests that are continually browsing the forum (as I write this there are 2 power contributors, 3 occasional users and 94 guests logged onto oooforum).
