dear Experts,

I want to make an application using Flex which consumes REST Service... Which one is better in term of performance :
- Make A map service with A layer which consisted of many States (the MXD has 1 layer for all States) or
- Make A map service with MANY State layers (the MXD has n-state layers) or
- Make many State map services

And.., out of these three map services, which one consumes the most server's resources ?
