I have a dedicated server running on Plesk Panel for Windows. The server has 8GB ram and seems to be getting slower due to high connection queue I think.
I'm running 8GB RAM on Quad-Core AMD Opteron(tm) Processor 1354.
Other than adding more hardware, what are some of the ways to improve response times and/or monitor what is causing the bottleneck?
Right now many sites on the default pool, when I load them up, are getting stuck at the "waiting for reply". Often times websites will take 10 seconds to respond.
I've been recommended to give each website its own dedicated application pool. However I do have about 350 sites on the server. With this amount of memory, do you recommend using this method to make the server run faster? Would it run out of memory with only 8GB RAM?
