that greatly depends on the OS and what else you have running... this
OS/2 box is churning about 280Kkeys/sec with =several= other processes
running at the same time... one of those processes is a personal
rc5-proxy (i have four of my own  machines at this time feeding from the
proxy)... other processes include FTP and HTTP daemons... currently, the
are 57 processes and 206 threads and this varies up to 65-70 processes
and i have seen the threads climb to 240 or so...

this is a P200 (no MMX) with 98Meg of RAM and about 9gig of storage...
