Hello Experts,

Can someone please provide high-level steps, ideas, action plan to optimize performance for a farm of Web servers? These are IIS Web servers,

Any tools/performance/monitoring tools that are free and can be used to monitor and improve performance across Web servers?

Any recommendations, suggestions, key points to look at servers to identify bottle necks, performance issues, and how to fix and prevent any performance issues?

Without knowing what the servers serve up, often the first thing is to offload the static contents by placing a reverse proxy.

Then you would make sure there is no memory leakage in your apps.

perfmon is a free tool that you can use to monitor the memory, disk, process, workers,
Establish a base line, and then look at peak times.

static content, images, avi, etc. are cached by the reverse proxy.
when a request includes them, the reverse proxy will serve them such that the connection will not be forwarded to the web server.

There are many links/discussion on "reverse proxy offload static content"


You should analyze and determine what causes the load on your setup.

Your setup might be that the majority of your issue deals with the data exchange to the backend SQL server.

Use perfmon on the backend sql server to see whether it is the issue you need to address.

thanks,

By using Perfmon, what specific counters should I be looking on the SQL server? Anything to look at the Webserver?
