Performance Tuning

Adjust Performance Tuning set to the number of daily connections you anticipate for your site. If the number is set slightly higher than the actual number of connections, the connections made faster, and server performance is improved. If the number is much greater than the real connection attempts, server memory is wasted, reducing overall server performance.

Enable Bandwidth Throttling

Check the Enable Bandwidth Throttling option to limit the bandwidth used by this Web site. For this Web site only, the value for bandwidth typed here overrides the value set at the computer level, even if this value is greater than values set at the level of equipment.

Connection Configuration

HTTP KeepAlives enabled – check this box to allow a client to maintain an open connection with your server, instead of reopening the client connection with each new request. KeepAlives are enabled by default.
