Application Response Time

A quick update on application response times. If you recall, we recently added additional CPU to our application servers:

  • On 8/8, Scott assigned two additional CPUs to ist-wp-app-prod02
  • On 8/11, Scott assigned two additional CPUs to ist-wp-app-prod01 and ist-wp-app-prod03

Here’s an updated chart with some additional data.

Whereas our last post detailing response times suffered because we didn’t have enough data after the adjustment to the environment, this post clearly highlights how not having enough data before the adjustment is making it difficult to draw conclusions.

It does look promising, though. Performance is slightly better overall, and does not appear to be spiking heavily from day to day.

I am going to pull additional logs from prior to the adjustment and create an updated chart later today.
