Advanced Windows System Settings

I wanted to find what is the best setting for Qlikview server to operate under based on the advanced windows system settings tab.

Attached is a screen-shot of my settings.

Currently my server is set to: "Adjust for best performance of Programs" and the server is unresponsive while loading two tasks at the same time.

Would it be recommended to change the setting to: Adjust for best performance of Background Services, Does anyone have this setting enabled in their environments ?

Any feedback will be appreciated.

Never had this question asked before in regards to QlikView and I would set it for Program.

Any one tried this out?

As QlikView (QVS) works as s service, maybe it should be right to change it to services?

I think Bill is right, QlikView works as a service but definitely not a background one, I think by changing that qlikview will get a lower priority.

Re: Advanced Windows System Settings

My gut feeling here is to set it to optimize for background services on a QlikView Server. The only conclusion I can draw from the terms "program" and "background service" is that a program is something that has a GUI or is using Windows forms of some kind, whilst a (background) service is just that; a service. GUI elements are even supressed for a service, so it's very much in the background, I would say.

I really think it is a strange wording from Microsoft's direction (dumbing down the terms of advanced functionality has always been a weakness in Windows Server operating systems) and I really can't find any good documentation on it.

However, I really think it has a fairly small impact, but that's just my thought on the matter, purely untested.

Edit: Also, if this has to do with prioritization (which I suspect), it will most likely only do any difference if there are both "types" of applications fighting over resources. For me it's natural in any case to consider everything running with a GUI on a server as down-prioritized, especially since the machine is in fact a "server". Not a "workstation", which would imply much more GUI. /end of rant
