VMWare – TFS – Performance Tuning

Suppose your application Tiers and or Data tiers are in VMWare Virtual machines, please try the following steps, this will throttle performance.

This setting is for the VM's and not for the host machine.

On the VM Ware machine, << under – Control panel – system –Device manager-network adapters – right click on the Virtual Ethernet adapter and go to properties – Advanced >>

Select the Speed & Duplex and if it is set to “Auto negotiate” then change it to “Full Duplex” (the change will cause a few seconds disconnection and it will resume on its own).


You will notice a remarkable performance boost.

(We will add more tuning steps once we validate and verify a few things from our side)
