Improving Performance

  Asked By: Cesar    Date: Oct 05    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 908

I am receiving a few complaints about the speed of one of the SharePoint
portals I administer. I wanted to see what some on the list are doing. I am
thinking of enablig output caching, but it needs to go throught the change
mgmt process--so I thought I would see what other best practices there might
but there.

That will definitely help. have you considered BLOB caching? What is your home
page size? roll up web parts? Don't forget that you can also leverage object
caching as well.

Do you use Fiddler? http://www.fiddlertool.com/Fiddler2/version.asp - It will
show you details about your pages.

you can also use the Sonar Web part
www.binarywave.com/.../default.aspx for performance

have you seen this?

A word of warning is to do before and after testing of changes.
Changes that should help can end up hurting.

We proved in extensive testing of a build of our environment in
Microsoft's labs that enabling both SharePoint's blobcache and IIS's
compression (even static only) slows the system down, whereas either
by itself makes it faster. We ended up doing both static and dynamic
compression and disabling blobcache.

Be careful of the memory allocation to caching  if you have a 32 bit
server environment. You can run into the per-process 2GB application
memory space limit long before you run out of available system

Turns out that it was a SQL probelm w/ another app eating up more than it
should. Still, it is good to know whether or not enabling output  cache and
blob cache are good ideas or not.
