Volgens een test van CRN Test Center is Windows 2000 Advanced Sterver stabieler - maar in sommige gevallen ook trager - dan NT4:
Performance tests at the CRN Test Center showed therelease-to-manufacturing version of Microsoft Windows2000 Advanced Server throttles back CPU and memory use to increase stability, at the sacrifice of throughput for Web applications.
That lets the network operating system scale up better in enterprise environments, keeping the server up and running under torturous loads. Tweaks can be made to enhance throughput if the reseller so chooses.
Tests show CPU utilization drops about 58 percent when compared with Win NT 4.0. Throughput for Web services also dropped by approximately 18 percent, and memory usage dropped by about 10 percent.
