Analyzing Application Efficiency

You will periodically analyze your application efficiency to ensure that your content and services are at their highest availability and performance. This involves monitoring your applications' performance and resource usage. To do this pay special attention to the following performance counters:

  • Requests Queued (ASP): If this is getting high, you might have either an ASP application which could be made more efficient, a database that is not responding well, or a hardware bottleneck.

  • Requests per second (ASP): If this number is low, and the Requests Queued number is high, then you might want to investigate your ASP applications for resource bottlenecks or inefficient resource usage.

  • Total Blocking Locks (SQL): If this number is growing, then there might be a database resource bottleneck.
