Look on the cks mailing list - I was asking this sort of questions a
couple of months ago. IIRC the keyring is around 2G (look at,
he has the statistics), cpu requirements are moderate (though search
speed will of course increase with speed), no idea about bandwidth
requirements if you're going to have the server public, but I don't
think it's too much.
