How to Boost IIS performance




IIS, the web server, is a part for SPF site setup. While many stuffs work for SPF with IIS as a web server, it is important to know about the facts that how the performance of IIS can be pumped up. The better IIS performs, better SPF performs.


  • Object Cache TTL
    • For a dynamic site (in case of website), it is recommended that object shouldn't be cached. In case of SPF, where most important function of Plant Lifecycle, the integration occurs, it should be recommended that the cache is set to minimum possible. By default it is set to 15 minutes. It depends on the criticality of the project, or integration frequency how fast the cache should be refreshed.
  • Enable HTTP to Keep Alive
    • Improves client connection experience. Allows Integration authentication, recommended to keep it enabled.
  • HTTP Compression
    • An important feature recommended by IIS gurus. There is a built in feature to perform this task.
  • Connection Timeout
    • This depends totally on projects requirement, sometimes on a particular action. May be helpful while troubleshooting.
  • Optimize Memory Usage
    • IIS utilizes a lot of physical memory. More the memory alotted, better will be the IIS performance.
Hope you find this of some use. Till next post
