If the server is just a web server running CF and not used for anything else, you can use between 50-80%.
It can also depend on what OS and base server you are using since they may have extended abilities that require memory to process.
One thing I remember reading back when we started using MX6 & 7 was that if you have a dedicated server for web, you should set the Min and Max size to the same level so it doesn;t have to keep managing the memory - it just keeps the same memory available for Java services all the time then.
I've never tested whether there is a great benefit to doing this, but it's the way ours is setup and we don't see any issues with it.
Thanks for you reply.
We are using Windows 2003 with 8 GB of RAM with ColdFusion 8 on a dedicated Web server which connects to a SQL db server.
I have seen messages which recommend not to use more than 1024 MB, do you agree?
