Verity is deprecated in ColdFusion 9

Some users recently asked for details of Search Server support in ColdFusion 9 and further.

  • Future releases of ColdFusion support only Solr, the open-source enterprise search server based on the Lucene Java search library. See Solr Search Support for details.
  • ColdFusion 9 supports Verity, but it is deprecated, which means it is still available, but its use is not recommended, and will not be available in future releases.

IIS 6/IIS 7 for ColdFusion 9: Increasing the Number of Worker Threads

While using IIS6 for ColdFusion 9 (or ColdFusion 9.0.1), owing to heavy load, if you encounter performance issues, you may increase the number of worker threads.

  1. Go to the directory cf_root\runtime\lib\wsconfig\1.
    Note: In multiserver scenarios, the location is  jrun_root/lib/wsconfig/1. 1 indicates a single IIS website. If you have configured multiple IIS websites, the number can change accordingly.
  2. Open the file jrun_iis6_wildcard.ini (jrun_iis7_wildcard.ini if you use IIS 7).
  3. Uncomment maxworkerthreads=25.
    Note: By default, maxworkerthreads is commented.
  4. Change the value to 50 (maxworkerthreads=50) from the default value of 25.
  5. Restart IIS 6/IIS 7.

Note: The Maximum number of Simultaneous Template requests (Admin > Server Settings > Request Tunings > Request Limits) must also be increased accordingly.
