Ours is fairly simple and helps a lot.

Enforce automatic updates
Disable "disable on-access scan"
Force Client Upgrade (anyone not running 8.5i)

Maybe you should ask this question in a more specific way. It all depends on what you want to accomplish.

There are no performance issues related to the EPO server, at least not that I know of.

If you have bad performance, it would depend on your server. Make sure you have plenty of RAM if you are using a SQL Server Standard or Enterprise Edition.

(If you are not, and you have been running this epo 4.0 server for a while, you may have quite some events in the database. To clean those events, create a server task under automation, of type Purge Events. Set it up to purge events that are older than, say for example, 90 days.)

You might want to look into ways to optimize the SQL Database. The attached script will back up your EPO database and perform maintenance, too. Adjust to your needs and have it ran as a scheduled task :)

If it's still slow, consider removing VSE from the EPO server itself. You might save some there.

Finally, look into other applications that may be running on the server and remove what you don't need.

@echo off

set BACKUPFILE="C:\BackUp ePO\epodb.bak"

set OSQLEXE="C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\80\Tools\Binn\osql.exe" 

set MAINTEXE="C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL$EPOSERVER\Binn\sqlmaint.exe"

set SQLSERVER="SERVER\INSTANCE"

set DATABASE="ePO_SERVER"
 

echo BACKUP DATABASE [%DATABASE%] TO DISK=%BACKUPFILE% with FORMAT >>BACKUP.SQL

net stop "McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator 3.6.1 Server"

%OSQLEXE% -S "%SQLSERVER%" -d "%DATABASE%" -E -i BACKUP.SQL

net start "McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator 3.6.1 Server"

%MAINTEXE% -S "%SQLSERVER%" -D "%DATABASE%" -RebldIdx 5 -RmUnusedSpace 50 10 -UpdOptiStats 15
 

rem del BACKUP.SQL
 

set BACKUPFILE=

set OSQLEXE=

set MAINTEXE=

set SQLSERVER=

set DATABASE=
