With the help of the monitoring tools previously listed, a system administrator can quickly detect performance issues or infrastructure problems. In this section, I will explain some advanced features and configurations that can be used to resolve these issues and optimize the overall performance.

Worker servers can host many concurrent user sessions and applications. These sessions typically consume CPU and memory resources.

A critical aspect is how the operating system distributes the resources across the different sessions.
