I used to be an Ubuntu-happy educational technologist who is now in charge of a Windows Server 2008-IIS7 Moodle site, so I would like to ask for your advice about the following:
We have a small size site, but we are experiencing unnecesarilly delays of 2s or so everytime that Moodle a page/resource or course is loaded in a browser.
From the different possibilities that I am pondering on, I would like to limit the number of request in 'MaxKeepAliveRequests', but my understanding is that , in Windows, the equivalent concept to the former is 'allowKeepAlive', which should be set to false in order to disable the persisten conections.
Is this correct or is there any other way to set the maximum number of opened requests .
I am not also sure about what is the best way of disable allowKeepAlive for my Moodle site:
Would it be OK to just add the following lines to my web.config file?:
Or is it better to use the command appcmd.exe for that.
I understand that appcmd.exe is not added by default to the PATH variable, so what will the right way of calling the command and from which folder of the Windows OS shell ?
Thank you very much for your advice.
