Optimizing IIS 6.0 Performance

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 with SP1

When you monitor your application servers to maintain a baseline of performance data, you can spot performance trends as they develop, take steps to prevent unsatisfactory performance, decide how to best tune or upgrade your servers, and determine whether your changes are beneficial. By tuning your Internet Information Services (IIS) versionĀ 6.0 application servers, you improve the client experience, help avoid bottlenecks, and can extend the interval between hardware upgrades.
