Hi guys

I am going to install a Web Server (apache+mysql+php) at my work place. To
boost performance, I am just thinking that should I configure and rebuild
FreeBSD KERNEL for this hardware? And if so, what paramters I should
follow? Any help would be highly appreciated.

Server's hardware configuration is as follow:

 2  x  Quad Core Xeon E5450 3.0GHz,2x6MB,1333FSB
 16GB (8x2GB Dual Rank DIMMs) 667MHz FBD

 6  x  450GB SAS 15k 3.5" HD Hot Plug
 PERC 6/i, Integrated Controller Card x6 backplane
 PE2950 III C5 MSS R10 Add-in PERC 5/i / 6/i 1 S
 TCP/IP Offload Engine 2P
 Broadcom TCP/IP Offload Engine functionality (TOE) Not Enabled

Thank you guys.
