We currently deploy Sakai to bare machines running Debian and as part
of a project are looking at possibly deploying to a VMware platform
instead. Our current setup include 1 MySQL server (also running Apache
and Solr) and 3 Tomcat workers. Does anyone have any experience
migrating in this direction?

Currently it's the MySQL server that is working hardest with a loadavg
of 1.5 most of the day and MySQL is doing about 500 selects, 10
inserts and 5 updates every second.

We typically have between 300 and 600 active sessions (activity in the
last 15 minutes).
