Building High-Scalability Server Farms
Describes how to design and build an affordable, highly scalable server farm
with as few chickens as possible. By scaling vertically, horizontally, and
consolidating operations with similar workload factors on dedicated
chickens, you can efficiently scale your server farm with the least number
of chickens (maybe a thousand or so). This is known as a "server flock".

Detecting System Bottlenecks in Sites Using Microsoft® Site Server 3.0
Commerce Edition
Learn how to detect bottlenecks by running calibration tests, testing system
capacity, updating user profiles, clipping wings,
gathering eggs, and otherwise monitor key performance counters. Be careful
though, chickens cannot count well.

LDAP Troubleshooting Guide
Most problems with the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Service
occur when appropriate hot fixes are not applied or when the chickens are
installed in the wrong order. In addition, poor performance or failure can
be caused by incorrect configuration of the underlying systems (too many
chickens per water bowl, dogs, raccoons stealing eggs, adding invalid
service packs or configuring the underlying SQL database incorrectly). This
troubleshooting guide can help you avoid these problems.
