    Hi,

     

    Thank you for the update.

     

    Yes, although it´s documented that, due to a difference in system resources, FPSP performs significantly better on a 64-bit operating system (OS) than on a 32-bit OS. if you are concerned about performances and want to  check them have a look at Monitoring performance and health and Using Windows Performance Monitor.

  • Hi,

     

    Thank you for the post.

     

    Yes, but it is recommended that you install the 64-bit OS and a 64-bit SharePoint front-end server before installing FPSP.

  • But if you see the requirments it clearly mentioned that if we have a small enviroment in that case we can install on 32 bit too right.

    FPSP performs significantly better on a 64-bit operating system (OS) than on a 32-bit OS. If your organization expects to have large capacity requirements on SharePoint server, it is recommended that you install the 64-bit OS and a 64-bit SharePoint front-end server before installing FPSP.
