Subject RE: IIS7/isapi/tomcat performance

Perhaps my point is being missed here.  The issue is moving from 32 bit is
slower in 64 bit (4-500% if you need a number).  Components are the same,
setup is the same, database is the same, environment is the same, tests are
the same, network is the same.  I'm basically looking to see if anyone is
using a similar setup, and has been able to get it to perform well.

I agree with Charles. I run a performance Testing group for a fortune 50
and do alot of performance testing for different designs/implementation for
own startup and we can not help you without further info.

Client side setup (Browser/version?)
Test cases
Network speed
Tomcat Setup (startup command line with jdk options)
Extending logging options such as request time for tomcat
Make sure your logging is set to error and not debug level on your processes 
(IIS, Tomcat, Database?)

I would use yslow with FF to get page sizes and other info. developers seem
forget that the bandwidth is limited and 1MB pages are too big. Sometimes
are small but the javascript is quite big especially when calling web
For the middle tier a code profiler like visualvm helps quite a bit.

The key thing is narrow it down tier by tier then focus on the tier where you

see the biggest gains.
If manually you see x seconds then that is the best it will be before you
Gains in code will always be larger than that by configuration tuning unless 
logging level is set to high especially for jdbc calls.

Good luck,

Until you quantify "dramatically", better describe your testing scenario 
(including configurations of all components), eliminate as many moving pieces
you can (e.g., try Tomcat standalone), and do some basic bottleneck analysis,

there's not much anyone can help you with.
