My two cents' worth: If you are running Nways, it will depend on which
components you are installing. The
LNM component is a heavy hitter. If you are familiar with Optivity, it is about
like adding that on.  The other
components are more moderate, but there are a number of them, and they can hit
you in the memory
department if a number of users activate them. Generally, though, after initial
startup, they don't hurt
too much.  And keep in mind that the box-management part of the LAN component
are all going
java. I think that means that their cpu requirements will be growing.

I don't usually get to choose the box, so I have gotten good at implementing
one thing at a time,
then checking on the health of the box. If things get tight, then offload what
you can, eg polling.
