    We put more coal in the burning engine and it starts puffing more steam :p
    Now, seriously, the only answer is that you do this little by little, removing unnecessary load, getting rid of processes that eat up memoru/CPU, optimize code and database query as a starter.
    And don't forget to put more fuel :)

    CPU Performance

    Another thing is the amount of CPU time required by a program.:)
    it is a measure of the time spent by the processors to run the code. Many programs spend most of their time waiting for something to occur--input to reach, output to be written to disk, etc. While waiting, the CPU will usually be serving other requests and hence the program is not using CPU time. However, some programs may be primarily CPU-bound programs and for such programs, a savings in the amount of CPU time required may result in a substantial savings in absolute time.

    There are lots of optimization techniques available, but all depends upon the nature of your server and the services you are running in it.

    <h2 style="margin: 0px; padding: 0px; font-size: 16px; font-family: Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">Optimize Your Database



    The software uses MySQL for the database. There are a couple configuration options you can adjust to improve the speed of MySQL.

    All tables for the software are in INNODB format. Meaning that you will need to ensure that the config options for INNODB are ok. On some servers the default setting for INNODB tables is very low causing significant slow downs when dealing with data. So you can see a big increase in performance by making the following changes on those servers.

    Steps we suggest:

    1. Find and open your MySQL config file.
      On linux this is typically at /etc/my.cnf. On Windows this is typically a file in your MySQL folder named my.ini
    2. Add a line (or update if it is there) with the following:
      innodb_flush_log_at_trx_commit=0
    3. Add a line (or update if it is there) with the following:
      innodb_buffer_pool_size=1G
    4. Set the above size to 50% of the available memory on the server. In the above we set it to "1G" for if you have 2GB available on the server. If you have 8 GB on the server you could set this to "4G"
    5. You MUST restart MYSQL on the server for these changes to be used.

    Hard disks are the resources most heavily used by a server. The way a server's hard disks are configured and maintained usually has an enormous impact on the server's overall performance.
    As such, it makes sense to spend a bit of time optimizing a server's disk usage. In this article, I'll share some techniques for improving the efficiency of your server's disk subsystem.
    : Every server is configured differently. As such, disk configuration and optimization techniques that would be ideally suited to one organization might be detrimental to another. The only way to fully optimize a server's disk usage is to analyze which applications are running on the server, and how much of a workload those applications place on the server's disk subsystem.

    Therefore, there is no one technique that will make your server run with peak performance. This article will provide you with some general techniques that will improve the performance of most types of servers.

    Most forum software has options that enable you to compress data and take off some load from the server by minimizing database queries.

    Server optimization and performance tuning is the most important step to get the best stability and performance for your websites.
    If you have enough knowledge about system administration, then it wont be a difficult task for you to optimize your server. However, if you do not know enough about server administration, then I would suggest you to hire a professional server administrator or go for a manged server - where the company itself takes care of optimizing and monitoring your server.

    You will find several articles via google search that will give you tips and tricks to optimize and fine tune your server applications such as apache, mysql etc..

    If you are looking for some kind of automated script for optimizing linux server then you can find one at servermonkeys.com

    Well, most of the times the unnecessary softwares and applications which are pre-installed by the hosting providers consumes the memory usage and increases the server load, due to which the server stops responding and becomes slower. It is always better to ask your web host to uninstall the applications which are not necessary and increases too much load on the server or the softwares which consumes much of the memory of your server. This is one of the way to optimize your server for better performance.
