Here we’re going to show you how to install the Internet Information Services (IIS) web server version 10.0 in Microsoft’s Windows Server 2016 operating system.
Here is a quick benchmark of IIS 7.5 and IIS 8 to get an idea of the performance difference between these two Microsoft web servers for Windows on different numbers of CPU cores and different levels of concurrent connections. IIS 7.5 was tested on Windows Server 2008 R2 Datacenter, while IIS 8 was tested on the Release Candidate of Windows Server 2012.
Recently I’ve been using a great benchmarking took called Weighttpd, from the makers of the Lighttpd Web Server. Weighttpd is great because it is multithreaded, unlike it’s ancient and still used predecessor, Apache Benchmark (ab). I have made a short PowerShell script that uses this tool in Windows in order to run benchmarks that step through concurrency levels.
