Limits of IIS?
Posted on 2006-07-24
I am working on a web-based solution. Our solution serves different binary files (PDF, DOC, etc.) saved as BLOB in our Oracle server. The user requests for a file, we serve that file by fetching it from the DB and rendering it in the user's browser. Now! the question is:
1) What is the limit of IIS in such a scenario? How many simultaneous users can download files from our site? I guess this will depend on the size of file being served and on some other criteria too maybe, but what is the exact limit? I need a number....
2) How to change that limit? I have explored the IIS Manager but no apparent setting was available. I am using IIS 5.1. Where can I tweak quotas and stuff for my website users?
I will be glad if I can get any guidance in this regard.
Thanks in advance.
