My current setup is the following:
- Intel Xeon 5620 2.40Ghz
- 16GB RAM
- 1000GB disk
- Windows Server 2003 R2 x64
I'm having a really poor performance with this setup. I have some previous experiences running SharePoint on VM's with a lot less resouces than that, and equivalent performance.
I'm currently running a trial version of SharePoint 2007, but the whole machine is having a poor performance.
With that kind of hardware and software, I'd expect a really good machine running, but all I got is something worse than a 1gb VM.
I already bought the licences for SQL Sever 2008 and SharePoint 2007, so I can avoid the SQL Server Express limitations, but I'm really concerned that the problem is somewhere else.
Can anyone give me some tips regarding where to look for the bottlenecks and solutions? All suggestions appreciated :)
