Running ASP.NET 2.0 with IIS 6.0 - Getting optimal performance

We've recently acquired a new Application Server which will serve as an intranet web server for internally developed web applications. Previously we've been using Windows 2000 and ASP.NET 1.1, but the new server is Windows 2003 Enterprise and ASP.NET 2.0 with 8GB of RAM. We want to make sure that we're getting the lion's share of that server's resources servicing .NET requests.

I've recently come across an article posted on ASP.NET with tips on configuring the web server to get optimal performance with an application server using ASP 1.1 and IIS 6.0, just wasn't sure if the same settings needed to be applied when using ASP.NET 2.0. That article is linked below:

http://www.asp.net/learn/whitepapers/aspnet-and-iis6/

I was wondering if anyone has come across any other articles, or have any tips for getting the best performance out of IIS 6.0 and ASP.NET 2.0?

The tips in that page are fine. This site has lots of great information on running IIS: http://www.iis.net/default.aspx?tabid=1

You have more than enough RAM.  The real key is actually the quality of the development.  If you write code that stores too much complex data in sessions it can kill a server.
