comment IIS logging, write to log file more often
btw, to make it easier to call, I dropped a batch file I called iisflush.bat in system32 containing the netsh commands, and I call it from the start menu

thanks for the thorough answer, using IIS 7.5 on windows 7, the netsh http flush logbuffer command works fine, as for the reg key, to disable buffering, it doesn't seem to take effect on IIS 7.5, even after reboot, but the netsh command will do for now, until I can find the reg key equivalent for IIS 7.5, thanks again

comment VMware workstation: guest OS becomes sluggish after being idle for 12+ hours?
the driver that was installed was VMware SVGA 3D (Microsoft Corporation) from oct 17 2009, and i couldn't see the new updated driver that ESX has in common files, (I should upgrade from workstation 7.0.0 to 7.0.1) since the new driver not on my host, so I just uninstalled the current driver and logged in using remote desktop, it seems to work fine for now, i'll let it run for 12-24 hours see if it gets sluggish

thanks for the input, I will see what can be done with the VGA drivers, but I'm not convinced it would be a VGA problem, the more information the window has to gather, the more it's affected by the slowdown, it's not like graphically complex windows or snap ins are more affected, i'd bet it's I/O(CPU?) that becomes 'constipated', but I'll look into the VGA thing

after letting it run for 24hours, it's still ends up being very slow after being idle for a while, opening Windows Explorer takes 10-15 seconds when it takes only 1 second or less after a fresh boot, only solution i found so far is to schedule a restart of the VM every 4 hours or so of being idle.

Thanks Helvick, I have updated the my question with Host vs Guest configuration, and disabled VMWare's visual studio debugging experimental feature. I'll let it run for a good 12-24 hours at idle to see if the changes had a positive effect.

Hi, thanks for answering, Advanced Default/Default -Gather debugging information: None -Disable memory page trimming: Unchecked -Log virtual machine progress periodically: Unchecked -Enable template mode: Unchecked Replay section Debugging enabled -Maximum disk: Unlimited -Save the last: Unlimited -Snapshot frequency: Never -Enable VAssert(experimental): Unchecked -Enable Visual Studio debugger(experimental): Checked I have no snapshots. It does have visual studio installed. I see 3 log files were created earlier today(248 KB each). Would you recommended I change some settings?

ok, I just found the answer to the no GUI question here serverfault.com/questions/89029/… vmrun -T ws start C:\export\vmware\rh5\server.vmx nogui I could not find this command line option anywhere, serverfault.com is definetly a great resource. I will edit my question to expose the idle VM performance issue incase someone else has encountered this. My host is win 7 x64 and the guest 2008 r2 x64
