Moderated: -1 Too Vague

depends on what your application is.  when thinking about how to scale, you
look for bottlenecks.  is it computational?  network?  disk?  memory bus
bottleneck can be a killer.  there are a lot of things to consider.

so step 1 is to figure out why your app runs too slow on one machine (ie.
which resource runs out first?) and then go from there.

HTH.

When scaling a PC cluster would you add on single or dual cpu
servers and why?
