The goal of this article is to provide a checklist for validating Microsoft's Forefront Identity Manager's (FIM) configuration for optimal performance. As there are many different technologies involved in a FIM deployment, I thought it would be helpful to compile a list of articles that would be useful for planning or troubleshooting performance related issues.
This post provides a significant number of things to consider in planning and/or performance optimization of a FIM solution. As with any guidance of this nature, the guidance provided in this article may not apply to all situations and should be earnestly evaluated for applicability against the current design. This document is not specifically arranged in any order or priority, but is intended to form a comprehensive listing of items that may be decreasing performance.
