Performance

In the Performance pane, you define several important settings that influence the performance of the Manager web application.

Table 53: Meaning of configuration settings for performance

Setting

Description

Load balancing

The mode of integrated load balancing. In most cases, DistributeEqually should be selected.

Maximum workload

Maximum number of user sessions an application accepts. The application can be installed multiple times if a large number of sessions is required because system resources for each application process are limited.

Force maximum workload

The value in Maximum workload is overridden is this setting is not set. However, it is used as a threshold value for the DistributeSuccessively load balancing method.

Compress HTTP transfer

Specifies whether usage of compression for HTTP communication is set.

NOTE: Compression of HTTP communication must also be configured for Internet Information Services. For more information see the Web server documentation.

Host segmentation

Specifies host segmentation. This setting allows distribution of client sided requests to several server addresses representing aliases for the web front-end. This bypasses some of the browser limitation and can therefore shorten loading time if the network connection is bad.
