Hi David,

We are currently drafting both technical docs and user guides which
aren't yet available, but I'll comment here.

The server requirements are now to have 256 MB memory available to
allocate to the IPT reduced from the previous 1GB minimum and 2GB
preferred.  The import speed is related to both server CPU performance
and hardrive speed for the IPT machine, and then any databases
involved and the network to connect to them, so it is really very
difficult to quantify.  The minimum requirements would be the ability
to run Java 5 and allocate 256 MB of memory though.

I hope this helps,
