Monitor The Queue

You should always be monitoring system response time to gauge whether or not users are leaving your site because it is taking too long to respond. One of the most important tools used to gather this information is performance monitoring (using PerfMon or cfstat). The Queued Requests counter will tell you how many requests are currently queued (in line to be processed by ColdFusion), and Avg Queue Time tracks the ongoing average queue time (the time spent in queue). The lower the numbers (in both counters) the better, and if the numbers start increasing you’re probably losing visitors. (Applies to: ColdFusion 4 (or later))
