Monitoring Response Time

Want to know how long it is taking to execute requests on your ColdFusion Server? Check the Avg Req Time (Average Request Time) counter in PerfMon (Windows) or cfstat (Unix). This counter tracks the ongoing average response time of all requests, and the lower the number the better. And the actual number itself is probably not that significant, what is more important is to watch for changes in that number – any sharp increases are you’ve either got problems or you’re seeing a usage spike – and either way you need to make some changes. (Applies to: ColdFusion 4 (or later))
