How to improve IIS performance?Tips to improve performance of IIS?The Web server administrators often monitor their Web servers to create a baseline of performance. A baseline of performance is a set of data that shows how servers are performing when everything is going well. Before making changes to their servers in a production environment (eg. Deploying a new version of a Web application or hardware changes) administrators place their servers in a test environment to achieve the baseline established performance. By adjusting their servers in this way, they maximize throughput and reduce response time of Web applications, which create a better experience for customers with access to their web servers.Internet Information Services (IIS) exposes numerous configuration parameters that affect IIS performance. This topic describes several of these parameters and provides general guidance for setting the parameter values to improve IIS performance.
Using HTTP Compression: Describes how to improve performance between client and server computers by reducing the size of the files before the files are sent to the client computer. Reduce size of the file, as described here is called compression.To more efficiently use available bandwidth, enable IIS HTTP compression. HTTP compression provides faster transmission time between compression-enabled browsers and IIS, regardless of whether your content is served from local storage or a UNC resource.

Disable IIS logging if not required: Desable IIS IIS loggingin the production environment, so that you can save reduce the load of IIS.It will help to increase the preformance.

Enabling HTTP Keep-Alives: Describes how to use HTTP Keep-Alive requests to maintain an open connection.

Throttling Bandwidth: Describes how to change the bandwidth used by a Web server and individual Web sites.Based on the number of website configured in the IIS , for each one of the website we can set the bandwidth.

Configuring Application Pool Queue-Length Limits: Describes how to limit the number of requests IIS stores in any application pool queue so the requests do not grow to such a large size as to exhaust server resources.
