Sun Java System Web Server 7.0 Update 7 Performance Tuning, Sizing, and Scaling Guide

Virtual Servers

Virtual servers add another layer to the performance improvement process. Certain settings are tunable for the configuration, while others are based on an individual virtual server.

You can also use the quality of service (QoS) features to set resource utilization constraints for an individual virtual server. For example, you can use QoS features to limit the amount of bandwidth and the number of connections allowed for a virtual server. You can set these performance limits, track them, and optionally enforce them.

For more information about using the quality of service features, see Sun Java System Web Server 7.0 Update 7 Administrator’s Guide.
