Every Webform Server system architecture will differ based on the needs of the organization. Some systems will need to service many users at once, others will have only one or two very large forms, others will have several small forms, and so on. As a result, each form and Webform Server setup will need to be tested and tuned individually.
Before you can fine tune your Webform Server system architecture, you must understand how your system resources will be used and how your resources will be allocated under a heavy load. Ideally, all components should be near saturation, so that system resources are not wasted. If you want the highest possible performance from your Webform Server application, you will have to "tweak"
the system to see which configuration provides the best results for your particular application. We recommend using tools like Rational
® Performance Tester to simulate load and test system, application, and form scalability. Experimentation is the key for capturing the highest possible performance.
There are a number of tools that you can use to capture and analyze data. These include:
