Our KUfacts machine supports 600-1000 Lynx logins per day with reasonable
speed.  It is also used as a productional machine for academic research
work.  The hardware behind the machine is a rs/6000 350 with only 32 mbytes
of RAM, so it isn't what you would call a 'heavy' machine.  Lynx usage
is in general very unintensive with most processes using maybe 2% of the
processor with peaks in the teens during file transfers.
