Topics related to recommendations or questions on the design for HPCC Systems clusters

I would like to optimize the configuration of HPCC on a cluster of ten nodes with 4 cores and 4 disks. My jobs will be executing joins, sort, etc
Should I use 4 thor slaves? I have 12G of memory, so I was thinking leaving 2GB for the OS and giving 2.5G for each thor slave. Is that configuration optimal?
Also, how should I divide the other procs (sasha, dali,etc) among the nodes?

Thanks a lot,

Hi Keren,

I have an email out to the HPCC team regarding your question. What you are doing is pretty close to our training cluster, and we have configured all of the System Servers on a single box, and that seems to work pretty well.

I will reply again when I hear back from the team.
