Amount of RAM for a srcds
I know I've seen this information before, but I haven't been able to find it after searching for a while. Around how much RAM does it take per player for a CS:S server?

Maybe an easier question to answer: We're looking at a 2.8 GHz P4 machine with 512 MB of RAM and 10 Mbps uplink. Will we be able to fit a 12 man 100 tick private server, a 20 man 66 tick public server, and about a 15 person teamspeak or ventrilo server on this machine? It seems to me that 512 is too low, but we'll likely be running linux, and I haven't found any solid information on this.

Thanks in advance.
you should be fine. map changes will be your biggest enemy but wnt last long. if you run linux, run both servesr off one install.
try setting heapsize -524288 on your batch file to cache the server. this will make it easier on your ram
How does the heapsize command work exactly? and how much should I let SRCDS have if I have 1 gig of ram and I still want to use the system? 3/4 of the ram? 1/2?
