Common ColdFusion Issues We Can Assist With

ColdFusion Performance Troubleshooting

ColdFusion Server and application tuning is our most frequently requested consulting service.   We have built up a trusted reputation, providing this type of service to many customers located all over the world.

We can work remotely or onsite to tune your application and ColdFusion servers.  We recommend using FusionReactor to provide metrics on exactly what the application is doing before we use this data to perform “root-cause-analysis” and “performance analysis” in order to identify issues.

Our goal is to ensure that your ColdFusion server and application platform is working optimally, both now and for the future. As part of this service, we deliver:

Current state analysis – including application ‘hot spots’, such as longest-running pages and SQL requests, resource analysis (CPU, Memory). We can also provide in-depth metrics, such as templates causing the highest load on your platform. Recommended Actions Plan – relating to server configuration, memory configuration, application-specific improvements, etc.   This service is designed to help you stabilize and strengthen your environment by identifying and resolving issues that could result in system outages or poor application performance.

Issue Isolation / Identification and Fix

We have vast experience in isolating issues in complex, enterprise-scale systems.  Our Adobe certified engineers have worked on some of the largest ColdFusion-based applications and are used to having to work under pressure to identify problems in live, production systems.

Typical engagements involve highly aggressive time-restraints to get business-critical systems running smoothly. Building on our consulting infrastructure and vast experience, we’re able to offer the fastest route to identifying and solving your problems.

Our engineers work flexibly and quickly adapt to fit your requirements – whether you need training on the issue or prefer our engineers to take ownership of and resolve your issues autonomously, we can help.

Many of our engineers are cross-technology trained & certified, which is a necessary requirement in today’s multi-layered application environments. This broad range of skills allows us to confidently and proactively take on a wide range of issues from networking, OS configuration, web, application, and DB servers.

Database Tuning

Database issues are a common cause of poor web application performance. Typical related problems are:

  • Inefficient schemas
  • Missing or incorrect indexes
  • Transaction strategy problems
  • Poor caching strategy

FusionReactor provides in-depth information related to JDBC queries and is often deployed to assist in identifying such issues and our experienced consultants have the SQL and Relational Database skills to advise on best practices and ‘hands-on’ help resolve your DB issues.

Installing and Configuring ColdFusion

Intergral has been working with ColdFusion since 1997 and our consultants are all experts in ColdFusion installation and configuration. Our services include:

  • Installing, administering, configuring, updating, upgrading, or migrating CF servers.  
  • Security/lockdown, container deployment and orchestration
  • Integration with and monitoring of web servers, DB servers, caching servers, web app firewalls etc.

Our expertise and in-depth knowledge of ColdFusion combined with our tooling allow us to offer support to many non-standard environments (such as Solaris, AIX, HP-UX, many un-officially supported CPUs, JVMs, and application servers).
