Side by Side comparison of Windows Server 2016 Installation Memory Utilization (Hyper-V)

So I have 3 freshly installed Windows Server Virtual Machines with nothing installed but the base operating system. These are running on Windows 10 Enterprise with Hyper-V.

1. Windows Server 2012 R2 (GUI)

2. Windows Server 2016 (GUI)

3. Windows Server 2016 (Core

These virtual machines are on a strict memory diet Smile I have configured all three to have 32mb available RAM but on dynamic memory.

With no user logged-in and with only default services running, here are the results:

image

We see that the Windows Server 2016 Core installation runs at 454 MB next to it is the GUI for 2016 then finally at 692 MB for 2012 R2.

Now with Administrator Logged-in:

Now with Administrator Logged-in but closing server manager for virtual machines with GUI installed.

Trying to install IIS on all three VM using PowerShell:

After Installation:

I also tried browsing the default web site installation of each IIS as seen on this screenshot and here’s the memory assignment from Hyper-V:

I’m signing out of the server to make sure no UI is running or services other than the web server that we have just installed.

*Launches 3 Visual Studio 2015 and creates 3 web performance test projects*

I have created 3 simple load test from Visual Studio to simulate browsing to the websites. If you are familiar with Visual Studio impremise load test, you will notice that the scenario is a single webtest that will be invoked multiple times by a load test. The multiplied scenario is a just basic web request.

Lets run the load test:

We are running the load test for 5 minutes:

And after a few more minutes:

I want you to draw your own conclusions based on the data that I have shown in this blog. I also wanted to publish the Load Test Results, but thats for another time. Until then, see ya!

Yesterday marks a milestone for user groups here in Manila. Its our 10th year anniversary and what better way to celebrate but to do another community-led event!

Next is Jay-R Barrios (Microsoft MVP for Cloud and Datacenter Management from Singapore) and one of the geeks that started this user group and the one that recruited me to the community.

His talk no less than create an entire infrastructure on an Intel NUC and Surface Book. Did it using Microsoft Deployment Toolkit and System Center Configuration Manager.

Then its Jay Paloma’s turn on Career in Desktop. Doing talk about desktop deployments and more deployment essentials. Also did I say already that he is an MVP since 2007?

Its also handy if you got a CEH guy hanging around the venue. One of our core member Ren Narvaez, MVP for Enterprise Security delivered a hacking topic that I really really cannot show on my blog. Again guys, those are for educational purposes only. Dont try those at home!

How to disable clutter [Fixed]

Send Grid never failed me, I had never used the plain’ol SMTP way back when I started using Azure. But today, I have been pulling my hairs out because it seems my password reset is not sending any email.

I checked, double checked my IIdentityMessageService implementation and I know this works. I changed to my personal Office 365, refreshed it again and still no avail. But wait, what is this? Clutter. Clutter is a feature already as described here.

image

To turn this off, go to your Mail options by clicking the cog in the right hand corner and then click  options.

Navigate to Options > Mail > Automatic Processing > Clutter.

image

Uncheck “Separate items identified as clutter. Then click save.

image

There ya go, now back to the forgot password thingy.
