I am setting up a new 64bit Win 2008 server with 16G of RAM, also CF Enterprise 9.
This is my first time with 64 bit windows and enterprise CF (64bit also). I'd like some recommendations for the initial request tuning, with the understanding that adjustments will need to be made as time goes on, based on usage. The current request settings are included in an attached screenshot.
Our application produces many pdfs, Excel worksheets and other export formats for reports and is sometimes database intensive, but is not exclusively so. In addition, a frequent task the application must do is to produce static maps for inclusion into the pdf documents. For these tasks, the server must wait for the map server to generate images for inclusion into the pdf document.
I won't be able to afford to hire out to do load testing, so would like to start with a best guess as to how the CF server should be configured.
SEE basic info for server and CF in attached screenshots.
