- Go through the nodes in the request schema and check the available resources.

Example for Sharepoint
Windows SharePoint Services is a heavy application and requires adequate
amount of RAM installed on the hardware node to host hundreds of WSS sites.
Also, there is an issue with WSS timer service (
owstimer.exe process) and
there is no final fix from Microsoft for it - the service uses too much memory
after several days of uptime.
A temporary resolution is to restart the service every day or week, depending on the process memory consumption.
To schedule a restart, create the following command file
net stop sptimerv3 net start sptimerv3
And add a Windows scheduler job for this bat file: Windows Control Panel > Scheduled Tasks.
