I don't know the habit's if the users, I guess they are rather mixed. So 
if we assume the "worst" case? The hardware needs to be able to handle 
even the worst peaks that could possible occur in our use case, so a 
rather generous margin is needed, I think. But even just some average 
data on needed resources would be valuable!

Thanks for the reply
