Dedicated to what author Kenton Gardinier terms the art of performance tuning, Windows NT Performance Tuning & Optimization boasts an impressive compilation of tips and tricks guaranteed to make your servers sizzle. Though clearly a fan of NT, Gardinier judiciously assesses the operating system (including its faults).
The insights start almost before the book does, with a list of 10 performance-boosting tips right in the introduction. Extremely basic (the first item is "add more memory"), this list prods you to consider simple ways you can enhance performance before delving into meatier methods. Indicative of its well-designed approach, the book begins with a "Getting to Know You" chapter on the Windows NT server environment, outlining both hardware and operating-system architecture. A terrific chapter on capacity planning follows, discussing how to anticipate your resource requirements. This section walks you through the process of forecasting your network's growth and even recommends several helpful tools.
From there, the book gets down to the business of making your servers run faster, exploring memory, network, printing, and graphics subsystem performance. A particularly handy chapter on using the NT registry teaches you how to soup up your servers without bringing your system to a screeching halt (and in the process destroying mounds of data). But perhaps most useful to those unabashed Microsoft shops are the chapters devoted to Microsoft-specific server software. While not designed to be the definitive word on Internet Information Server, SQL Server, Exchange Server, or Systems Management Server, these chapters offer guidance on making these servers run efficiently while keeping NT humming. --Sarah Roberts Witt
