Posts Tagged ‘bottleneck’

Dear all,

The developer dashboard is a very handy tool in Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010, when it comes to analyzing how your site is loading and finding potential bottlenecks. It displays information about databases, webservices, the current page itself and so on. You can see an example of the developer dashboard here. Once enabled, it can be found scrolling at the bottom of the page you want to analyze.

The Developer Dashboard

There are three states the developer dashboard can be in:

  • On: Displayed
  • Off: Not displayed
  • On Demand: Can be toggled by the user.

And you have three possibilities of turning it on or off:

  • STSADM.exe
  • PowerShell
  • SharePoint COM

In this post, we’ll just focus on the STSADM.exe method, since it is the fastest one. STSADM.exe is located in the HIVE folder of SharePoint 2010 (usually “C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\”, and there in the “BIN” folder).

The STSADM.exe Method:

On:  stsadm -o setproperty -pn developer-dashboard -pv on

Off:  stsadm -o setproperty -pn developer-dashboard -pv off

On Demand:  stsadm -o setproperty -pn developer-dashboard -pv ondemand

Turning it on “On Demand” creates a new button in the menu, which is shown in the following picture:

On Demand Developer Dashboard Toggle Button

That’s it! The command takes a few seconds to run and then quits with a “Operation successful” message.

Best regards and stay tuned till the next time,

Martin

Dear all,

 

There is a new tool out to deal with the variety of ULS logs that get generated and are hardly accesible.

As part of the Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Administration Toolkit v2.0, the SharePoint Diagnostic Studio is delivering the following information into a single graphical user interface:

 

  • Base
  • Capacity
  • Performance
  • Availability
  • Usage

Hence, it is allowing to assess performance issues in a single graphical representation, showing possible problems at a glance.

 

Moreover, it features integrated search capabilities, snapshots and a context sensitive help.

 

Not bad for a 1.9M download!
