FWIW, since I'm sure most people don't have dedicated servers:

DreamHost says that their shared hosting customers shouldn't be using
more than 30-40 [CPU minutes per day][1], and if they consistently
exceed it they may be asked to upgrade to a dedicated package.

It obviously depends on what plugins/themes are being used, but for me
works out at about 10,000 pageviews per day with no cache.[2] WP-Cache
should be at least 10x that, or more.

[2]: I think. Have you ever tried to analyze a log where every single
item is `php.cgi`? :)
