  • I have 4 wfe and 2 app servers in my farm.
  • There is only one publishing portal on this farm.
  • I provisioned the web analytics service application through central admin.

Now i want to start the "Web Analytics Data Processing Service" and "Web Analytics Web Service". Should i start those two services in which servers? App servers or Web Front Ends or all of them?

Most architects I know would use their last WFE for something like this, the one that gets hit the least and make it a fail over WFE.

Or ideally have a Server for things like this.
