We are looking at increasing the number of work item threads on an appserver, and got to wondering about valid values. I see where the default is set to 50, and we have a second appserver running on the same host with an additional 50 work item threads.
Is there some reason why it would be preferable to have a second appserver with 50 threads, instead of just increasing the single appserver instance to, say, 100 threads? Or 65, or 132?
I've reviewed the Admin Guide, but there doesn't seem to be much in the way of guidelines for setting this value (likewise with the forums). Any help or guidance would be appreciated.
i'm researching about the same issue and found no whitepapers or sizing guidelines
this could be a good research field for someone with some spare time
