How to improve Web application server performance in case of SAP BI platform running on WACS

To improve the server performance of a WACS, you can change the amount of memory that is allocated to the server through the Central Configuration Manager (CCM).
1.Starting the CCM, and click the Manage Servers icon .
2. Specify the logon credentials for the CMC.
3. On the "Manage Servers" screen, stop the WACS.
4.Click the Web Tier Configuration icon .
The Web Tier Configuration icon is only enabled when you select a WACS that is stopped.
The "Web Tier Configuration" screen appears.
5. Under "Command Line Parameters", specify a new memory value by editing the command line:
a. Find the -Xmx option. This option normally has a value specified.
For example “-Xmx1g”. This setting allocates one giga byte of memory to the server.
b. Specify a new value for the parameter.
• To specify a value in mega bytes, use “m”. For example, “-Xmx640m” allocates 640 mega bytes of memory to the WACS.
• To specify a value in giga bytes, use “g”. For example, “-Xmx2g” allocates two giga bytes of memory to the WACS.
c. Click OK.
6. On the "Manage Servers" screen, start the WACS.
