Chapter 2. Monitoring System Performance > Deciding What to Do Next

Deciding What to Do Next

After you have a good grasp of your site's current performance, you can start looking for bottlenecks and performance issues. Every ColdFusion site is unique in one way or another, so it's hard to generalize about specific symptoms and their relationships to performance problems. One site may have a custom integration routine that downloads Web orders to an order processing system. Another site may have integrated ColdFusion with an Open Market transaction server. Many sites need to interface with a legacy mainframe database or with third-party applications. If you've examined all the non-ColdFusion bottleneck possibilities and still need to improve your ColdFusion server's performance, you have two options: optimizing the code, or adding more servers.

Some Issues to Consider When Looking for Performance Problems

A typical ColdFusion-driven site is fairly complex. Many factors, such as databases and network layout, contribute to performance. Given the possible number of these factors, your bottleneck is likely to lie outside ColdFusion or to indirectly depend on ColdFusion.
