Does A VPS Determine How Many GSA Threads I Can Use?

    I saw a guy saying that he uses 1000 threads on GSA and is able to submit 50,000-80,000 links a day
    with about 8,000-10,000 verified links a day. When asked how he is able to run that many threads, he
    said he uses a dedicated server... and like 20 semi dedicated proxies.

    So this has got me thinking. Are all the "super spammers" using dedicated servers?

    My brother was trying to convince me to buy a server a couple weeks ago (he already has 2 of his own
    for work, and we would split the 3rd one). I asked him how much everything would cost and he said $120.
    Then I read online and these servers costs >>> $150 A MONTH to have. So I'm convinced his work is
    paying for something (is it hosting?) and he forgot to tell me.

    Anyway, he's out on business but he works from home most the time managing servers, which I suppose
    is why his work would pay for them (he works for At&t).

    With GSA I'm a newbie. All I know is I want to create as many backlinks as possible. I've been using SB for
    a few years, so I know how to filter links / variate anchor text and what not. And since I'll be using this
    mostly for youtube, spamming is not just ok its almost required.

    This may be a stupid question, but is there any type of formula that can be converted into threads?
    Like how do I know how many threads I can get on a specific VPS?

    If I get http://www.burst.net/winvps.php VPS 3 for $25
    How many GSA threads do you think I can use?

    If I shared a dedicated server with my brother instead... how many could I get? Does 500 sound right?
    If his work pays for his servers, it seems like the smart choice is to go with him (I still have to ask him).

    But in worst case scenario, how many threads do you think I could get from the VPS above?
    Are the "threads" in GSA = to your CPU? Is it a combination of CPU and RAM? Or is it a combination of
    CPU, RAM and Internet Speed (I have pretty fast internet).

    I'm just trying to figure out the most affordable way to get more rocket fuel for GSA.

    What do you power users do? ;)

    depending on what types of links he builts on how many projects and other unknown factors i think this is a pretty bad results for 1000 threads. you can get that rate of >50k submissions on a 1GB single core VPS with ~80 threads. rule of thumb is around '1 Link per minute / thread' (80*1440 = 115200 submissions) with optimized engine selection and footprints for scraping and good proxies. but for that you need to tweak the shit out of SER. if you like to know how to optimize SER than take a look at the official GSA forum and read the sticky "compiled lists of tips..." thread. within that thread you find links to usefull discussions, but don't expect to get high LPM rates with ease as this is depending on many factors (proxies, engine selection, number of urls to post to, filters, ...)

    hard to guess, but i think 120-150 threads are possible for sure. the bottleneck for that setup is a bandwith limit of 2TB as it may happen that this isn't enough. but i can be wrong about this. those things needs to be tested by yourself.

    number of threads = how many tasks will be done at the same time. typical tasks are searching, submitting, email-parsing, verifying, ...
    SER is mostly a CPU driven application imo. as its a 32bit tool it is limited in RAM usage by nature, so 4GB are enough for most. a stable >25Mbit connection is necessary as well imo.
