Now that you know how to monitor your system, let’s look at how you can tune the operating system and hardware performance. I’ll examine the following areas:
Memory usage and caching
Network bandwidth and connectivity
Memory is often the source of performance problems, and you should always rule out memory problems before examining other areas of the system. Systems use both physical and virtual memory. To rule out memory problems with a system, you should configure application performance, memory usage, and data throughput settings, and then monitor the server’s memory usage to check for problems.
Application performance and memory usage settings determine how ...
