The author makes the point that the Ultra 5 can only have up to 512MB of RAM so that addressing beyond 2GB is never going to be an issue. What the author seems to be complettely missing is that the Ultra 5 has a *hard drive* that is larger than 2GB. Anyone that has really tried to performance tune a production NewsNet server or *production* mysql database knows that when buffers/databases grow beyond 2GB, it is nice when fseek() is being called from a truely 64bit binary. How large was Tony's mysql database files? He didn't say. I keep track of customer trouble tickets for at least a year and the database very quickly exceeds 2GB. I would make a bet that Tony was using something more along the lines of 20MB.
