How to minimise ASP Request Queue time ?

Hi guys ,

I am running on a dual xeon 2.8 with 1 gig ram , on win2k , my CPU load on the average during peak is about 13% +/-

question is when my users access my ASP script when there is only about 60 people concurrently , out of about 2 mins , there are a few spikes that reach 4-5 sec for the ASP REQUEST QUEUE meter , i see this using the performance program in win2k

but then again my CPU load is still so much under utlize , how come there are this spikes ?

I already increase the ASPproccessormax from default 25 to 50 , but this problem still persists

how can i maximise my CPU capability and keep the ASP QUEUE to zero ?

ASP script and MS SQL is running on different server

thank you and regards

What is disk utilization like on this system?
Some perfmon statistics that can help you would be
Object: PhysicalDisk Counter: Avg. Disk Que Length
Object: PhysicalDisk Counter: Disk Read Bytes/ Sec
Object: PhysicalDisk Counter: Disk Write Bytes/ Sec

In Task Manager, what is your commit charge displaying for Total, Limit and Peak?
To get here go to CTRL-ALT-DEL -> Task Manager -> Performance, inspect bottom left corner.
