Please recommend me a suitable memory size for a dedicated  3 TB fileserver. would a 512MB suffice the system? or do  I need a larger 4GB RAM?


Thanks in Advance

There are many factors

Such as how many connections and so on. But it should work with 512MB but how well I don't know... Only way to be sure is to test. My 2TB fileserver at home works well but has max 3 connections and is certainly not expected to throughput huge amounts of data (512MB RAM with 1 CPU running as an OVZ container).
