Slow bringing up site with List web part of 980 items

  Asked By: Joseph    Date: Jan 09    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1717

We have a site with a List Web Part on it. The List has 980 items in
it. Even when the list web part is minimized, it takes 7 to 8 seconds
to bring up the page.

We created a farm with 2 WFE with 4 GB RAM and a SQL Cluster with 8 GB
RAM. The content was migrated from SPS 2003. When we view the site in
SPS 2003, it only takes 2 to 3 seconds and that hardware has less specs.

Is there anyway to improved this performance? I understand performance
should degrade at 2,000 list items, but we are not there and seeing
issues. Even a list with 466 items is noticably slower.

In the list  settings, select 'Indexed' on the column being used to sort
the view. This will actually let you go well past 2k items  in WSs V3.
