  • optimized terminal server

    i have this terminal server:

    cpu: 3GH
    ram: 2G

    i have 12 users on this sever all working on a web application.
    sometime the load on the cpu is high and users complain thet server
    is slow other times i see in task manager that specific users take
    very large amount of ram much more then others and those users
    also have very big folder here > C:\Documents and Settings\DAVID\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5

    yet in task manager i see that the server use only 70% of the ram at
    the most.

    what are microsoft recomandations about how many users should log in
    to one server?

    what services should i disable and what more can be done to optimize
    the server?

    is there any way to delete all cach files for each and every user when
    they log off (content.ie5) ? ( 3 party app ? ).

    This setting is available in both the Computer and User Configuration section:

    Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Internet Explorer\Internet Control Panel\Advanced Page
    "Empty Temporary Internet Files folder when browser is closed"


    You can use a logoff script to delete C:\"Documents and Settings\%username%\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files"\*.* /Q /F /S.

      Microsoft makes no recommendations for user to terminal server ratio, as this is subjective based on the software being used. That being said increasing the RAM to 4GB would be the first place to start, then look at software to manage the CPU usage so one user or application doesn't dominate the CPUs and leave nothing for the other users. Provision Networks Max-IT and Aurema Armtech are my favorites, as they work on the fair share method, i.e. divide the CPUs into a pie and give each user a piece of the pie. If no one else is using the cpu cycles, one user is allowed to use more, but is restricted if another user requires use of the CPUs. Other applications work by artifically clamping an application, lowering the priority or changing the affinity. Here's an extensive list of available apps to pick from:

      You can also look at ThreadMaster, which is absolutely free, but has no GUI. If you happen to be using 2003 Enterprise Edition (not likely), you can install WSRM.
