Hello (and greetings to all the people with whom I have worked in the past!!),

In building our nodes I wanted to ask the community your
thoughts/suggestions/experiences on having a single machine node.  We
wonder if having a quad-core machine (instead of 3 separate audio,
video and display ones) will be enough for sessions with many
attendees, streaming MPEG4 and running shared applications.  Jason
Bell reported CPU usage of 40% with 4 video streams
we are planning to send up to 8 video streams.

I'd appreciate your recommendations.  Thanks much!
