Dedi upgrade advice
Currently have one Hetzner i7 dedi for a client: http://www.hetzner.de/en/hosting/produkte_rootserver/ex4
It has pretty high load (seriously high traffic site). Server is connected at 100mbit now according to Hetzner. Server config is pretty much fine-tuned and still load spikes to 15.00 sometimes a day. Thats why I wonder:
Should I upgrade to 1gbit line (39euro extra upon the monthly plan) or go for a Xeon processor? (eg http://www.hetzner.de/en/hosting/produkte_rootserver/ex6 for same amount of ram or http://www.hetzner.de/en/hosting/produkte_rootserver/ex6s for double ram)
Thanks for your input all.
