Hello all.  I am going to be running a subset of data on a new box.  We have a larger production system that has a dual processor.  If there is a small amount of data would a single processor be ok that has 1 gig of RAM with a Intel Pentium 4 Processor 2.6GHz processor?  Thanks all

    A box with 1GB RAM and a P4 2.6GB can run a rather large database without any problems.

    What is the size of the prod database? Datafiles? Users? OLTP System?

    So, it could be ok .. but with that limited information ... I'd say it COULD be ok ;)
