Sun Java System Web Server 7.0 Update 3 Performance Tuning, Sizing, and Scaling Guide


While serving large files, for example, movie files, consider tuning the file-cache/sendfile-size. A sendfile-size of 1MB can provide improved performance compared to the default sendfile-size of zero. You can set the sendfile-size in Admin Console by editing Sendfile Size field on the configuration's Performance tab ⇒ Cache tab, under File Cache. In the command-line interface, use wadm set-file-cache-prop command's sendfile-size property.
