Performance Monitoring and Optimization RRS feed

  • Question

  • The company where you work hosts its own Web server. After the recent release of a new product line, that hosting server has been slammed with visitors. You want to show management that a new Web server is in order.  What baseline test would you run?  What performance parameters would you monitor?  What would tool would you use to set up the baseline and how woud you view the reports?  Where are the reports stored on the hard drive in case you want to to access them later?  What are acceptable thresholds for the parameters that you chose to monitor?  Where can you find best practices for performance parameters by which to make your determination on how to invest in the upgrade? How would you make the server scaleable?
