Hello. The native Navision’s 3.60 service operates on dedicated HP server with two physical CPU Intel Xeons with Hyper Threading Technology. Is that bad (thinking about performance only)? Whould be 1 CPU better then 2? And maybe even 1 cpu without HT is better for Navision server? TIA Valius
Hi, Navision ‘native’ Server doesn’t use hyperthreading nor takes advantage of multiple processors. It is a waste of money. Use a single processor machine with 1GB of memory and spend your money on SCSI disks (15K RPM) - as many as possible, so that you can spread the I/Os accross the disks. Hynek
Thanks, Hynek. Server already have 2 CPU’s with HT (so, money - last question in the queue). Your advise: sell at least one ? But if I’am monitoring W2K Performance - it seems for me that all 4 CPUs work… ??? And another case: if server “doesn’t use hyperthreading” but I lunch client (fin.exe) for night job - will it use? Best regards Valius
Allow Windows to use processor cache fully. I don’t understand that too:( There is dedicated Server with 2GB RAM. Navision (3.60) uses 870MB for Cash. That’s all. But- back to my issues with CPUs. Anybody can’t see real profit from using HyperThreading on server?Really? Then may be u saw negative impact of it ? How to measure that ? I hope - maybe somebody knows by experiance impact of counter’s “Switching Context” values over average? TIA V.
