#1: Performance - 1 vs 2 processor

Posted on 2008-04-24 20:58:02 by MSUTech

In regards to cost vs. performance..... what is the recommendation for a IIS
Web Server?

Our web server is primarily asp/asp.net communication with a Microsoft SQL
Server on a separate server.

thanks...

It all depends on what your workloads are like. Pretty much all webpages run
on a single thread. Since a thread can only run on a single CPU at a time,
multiple CPUs (or multiple cores) will not help if you only have a single
request at a time (though the other cores could be used to run threads for
other system processes)

Given that these days, even entry level servers come with Quad-Core Intel
Xeon CPUs, that's usually enough CPU power for most web servers these days.
You may be better off buying more RAM instead (to allow more caching of
pages in memory)

Cheers
Ken
