Has anyone got any recent GCG benchmarks on UNIX servers? We are looking to migrate 
from our old VAX3100/90 to a UNIX (Ugh!) box, but need some information on how to 
size the thing - I reckon 10x our current system on FASTA seraches is a minimum (3 
doublings to get us to the mess we are now in). Anybody got any comparitive figures - 
SGI v DEC alpha?

Anybody any idea which of the great selection of benchmarks is apllicable to GCG and 
to FASTA/Blast seraching?
