I'm reading up on NUMA and IIS 8.
When it discusses workload. #1 sounds like the better option although it mentions web garden. Pre-IIS 8, running web garden things like session data wasn't shared between worker processes and we had to "assume" the processes were independent
of each other. Does using NUMA now support this particular scenario where session data scene across multiple processes? From what I read, yes but I wanted to confirm. Option #1 sounds like it'll GREATLY increase performance.
IIS supports following two ways of partitioning the workload:
Windows Server MVP - IIS
Log archival solution
Install, Configure, Forget

I wonder Steve if this is more misinformation about web gardens.
For the past decade misinformation about web gardens has led to confusion where some think it is useful to use it in IIS6+..as you know generally (99+%) it is not.
How is this any different?
Also Steve how does it improve performance over #2 in your opinion?
Also why do you think there it shares session data throughout the garden any different to IIS7?1
I haven't done anything with IIS8 yet but I didn't understand any fundamental difference from 7 that could change my understanding maybe you van enlighten me.
