Registry setting for Windows2k3 file server

Posted on 2010-01-06

We're int he process of deploying a new terminal server. Because of such high activity on our file server, we have found that some registry hacks need to be implemented.

The basis for all the registry changes can be found in this article.

Here's a shot list of the setting in question.

    *  MaxWorkItems = 8192
    * InitWorkItems = 512
    * MaxMpxCt = 2048
    * MaxRawWorkItems = 512
    * MaxFreeConnections = 4096
    * MinFreeConnections = 256
    * SizReqBuf = 16644

Because the machine is up and in production, i don't really have the option of applying these setting and seeing what happens.

What I want to know is how I can track these settings in performance monitor to see if I need to leave alone, increase or decrease these values for the changes.

Anyone have any ideas?
