How many worker processes recommended per "x" users?

Hi All,

I'm currently working on a customer doing some performance tuning. They expect a few hundred more users to start using the system in the next few months. We're trying to come up with a list of recommendations regarding how to best utilize their existing web servers hardware (IIS6, 12Gb RAM, 8 processors).


Is there any rule of thumb that vinculates the number of users and the number of worker processes? Something like "every x number of web users concurrently connected to the system a worker process is recommended".
