Give priority to content services over reports services

I have a single server (ie: machine) which has dual roles:

1.  report server (Crystal Report Server XI)
2.  e-learning content server (Tomcat servlet engine)

There is also a web server running (IIS) which serves both content and reports.  Is it possible to configure the server such that content requests take priority over report requests.  Could this be accomplished by setting the priority of particular processes?

500 points cos I need a quick answer.

All I can think of is to use the task Maager to change the priority of the thread/service that you want.

There may be tuning options in IIS also that give finer control.

I hope this helps !

1. Transfer Crystal Reports on a separate server machine.

2. Change the Crystal Reports option to USER SERVER FOR SPEED..to NO. (crazy to do as this will push your resourses to the workstation, but hey...it's an option)

3. Be quiet and accept slowness as a fact of life.....     : )
