Ask a Jedi: ColdFusion Administration

A reader asks:

What do YOU consider the best online resource(s) for CFMX Server Administration? All of those XML files and hotfixes can be a little intimidating.

So, this is an interesting question, because to be honest, I'm not aware of any such thing. Certainly the first place I'd consider is the livedocs version of Configuring and Administering ColdFusion MX. Outside of that, however, I'm not aware of any resource the focuses just on the Administrator and tuning of the server. Certainly it can be a complex topic. (I had a good 2 hour talk with a smart friend about the proper settings of the JVM.) But some items are simple. (Like did you know you could add extensions to the CF Admin?)

Can anyone recommend any good URLs? Would this be a good section to add to my ColdFusion forums?
