Extremely Slow Page Loads

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 03, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Thought I would reach out to the experts and see if anybody might be able to point me in a direction as I do not know where to turn next. Any and all help is greatly appreciated. All of a sudden page load times on the primary web app in my SP2007 farm are extremely slow. Making the site almost unusable. Network performance seems fine as does SQL -- no obvious errors in the logs. The problem happens intermittently. Environment: •  Win2k3 SP2 servers    •  1 WFE (VM)        •  SharePoint 2007 SP2 w/ JUN 2010 cumulative update installed.        •  Most recent WU patches applied about 10 days ago (suspected cause?)      •  1 SQL 2005 (metal)        •  The content database is 20.7 GB, so it fall withing BPs.         •  My DBA has said the DBs do not look overly fragnmented •  1 site collection •  4 web apps •  The VM environment is VMWare vSphere. Search indexing (full) is disabled; All app pools have been recycled; Warmup scripts have been run; and the server has been been rebooted. Have anyone run across anything like this before? Can you point me in a direction? Thanks in advance.

Slow page load during a list query one time during the day


We have a monitoring tool set to check to see if the home pages for our 3 web apps load in under 60 seconds every 10 minutes.  All 3 web apps load in under 3 seconds on every 10 minute check except for one exception.  One check every day one of the web app's home page takes longer than 60 seconds to load.  This happens at 11:45PM when there is very little user usage on the environment.  The characteristics of this page are as follows: The only thing on the page is a list view web part which was added by the browser.  The page has not been customized with SPD or code at all.  The list that it pulls is a simple links list that has 281 items on it.  The view pulls all 281 items and displays them in sets of 100.  I cannot find any associated event in the server events and/or SharePoint ULS logs nor are there any daily sharepoint timer jobs running at that time.  Our full index happens at midnight with incremental happening hourly.  Our enviroment is 2 WFEs, 1 App/indexer and we have a separate SQL cluster backend.  

Could someone lead me possibly in the direction I should take next in my troubleshooting?   

Datagridview painting "EXTREMELY SLOW" on new PC

Hi, I have a appliation I wrote in .net 2.0 (VS 2005) and on all PCs except one it runs great, but on this one laptop (a brand new Dell XPS 1530) the Datagridview paints so slow when scrolling or resizing that you can see each row paint as if in slow motion.  It's so bad I would be extremely hesitant to relase the application as I know someone would complain.   Has anyone else seen this issue?  It's only happening on certain PCs.  The PCs in question are all up to date via windows update, so they have the same versions of everything.  The laptop has a Nvidia 8600GT chip in it with the latest drivers and I actually have the same drivers on some of the PCs where the grid is fast.   Thanks,   Tony Caduto AM Software Design Home of Lightning Admin for PostgreSQL and MySQL http://www.amsoftwaredesign.com

What is the standard practice to make sure one slow-running page doesn't affect other pages?

Page A loads very fast; Page B loads very slowly and does some CPU-intensive things on the web server.I noticed that if someone is loading Page B, then Page A also loads slowly - for ALL users. What is the standard practice for making sure this doesn't happen?  If multiple users are loading Page B at the same time then Page A is ridiculously slow.Is there an IIS setting, web.config setting, or hardware configuration I could use to make sure that the fast-loading pages aren't bogged down by other pages that need more time to load?

Scrolling through lists extremely slow

Hi , When viewing lists in SharePoint 2010 it's abnormally sluggish when scrolling especially with the scroll wheel on the mouse. If you grab the scroll bar with your mouse its abit faster but when scrolling with the wheel it jumps up and down. Viewing a list with 500 items on a page (which worked perfectly without issue in MOSS) is unbareable. Also when trying to edit the page that this list view is on, it takes for ever to load. Seems like a javascript issue, has anybody else experienced the same issue and know how to fix it? Note: the list with 500 items has been migrated from MOSS by upgrading a MOSS 2007 DB if that makes a difference. I have tested with a brand new list and the issue still occurs

How do I display my animated image while the next page loads?

I have the following code so it'll show an animated progress GIF but if the site takes longer than this, it will quit. Is there a more effective way?System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(2000) Here's my update progress code:<asp:UpdateProgress ID="UpdateProgress1" runat="server"> <ProgressTemplate> <div class="PleaseWait"> Please wait ... </div> </ProgressTemplate> </asp:UpdateProgress>  

Extremely slow Postback or Redirect

I have been coding simple ASP.NET pages for quite a while, but this problem is stumping me. I have a page that is almost purely HTML except for a few ASP.NET buttons and labels - as you can see in the code below. Problem: When I click on a button (that is not set up to do anything) or hit refresh, the page reloads twice at a normal rate and then the third time (and everytime therafter) it takes about 40 seconds to reload. On the first two reloads, some of the images don't always show up (blank placeholders) and sometimes they show a broken link placeholder. If I refresh the page too many times (10 or so) I get: HTTP 403.9 - Access Forbidden: Too many users are connected Internet Information Services When I click on a button that has a response.redirect, it takes 40 seconds to load the page even if it is the first button I have clicked. One of the buttons points to a page that I have not yet created and clicking that button takes 40 seconds to tell me the resource does not exits. Platform: The webpage is running on a Win XP Pro, box with 2GHz, 256RAM and IIS6 and SP2. On the web.config file all I have done is turn off custom errors and turned off debug. I get the same result hitting the page from the webpage server or from different machines. I am the only person hitting the website. I tested putting the page on a different server (XP Server 2003 box

Page load very slow


I've developed a web page Client.aspx that is used for  editing a client. This application has been deployed and I made sure that debug='false'.
Upon selecting a client from the dropdownlist, his/her information is retrieved for editing. This retrieving process is very slow( about 9 seconds).
Except this DropDownList, all the other controls on this page are within the Update Panel. There are 2-3 other Update Panels within the main Update Panel.

When a client is selected from the DropDownList, the Client_ID (DataValueField) is used to retrive the information
This method returns a dataset.
In the calling method I'm assigning these values to the respective fields.

Some JavaScript is used for validating Phone#.

I also have a RadioButtonList on this page. When one of the ListItem is selected I need to disable a TextBox. Even this process is taking much time than expected.

Any suggestions on speeding up my application would be greatly appreciated.

Getting connection error to a database when page loads...occasionally...


So occasionally after a run to the database I am getting the following error;

A connection was successfully established with the server, but then an error occurred during the login process. (provider: Named Pipes Provider, error: 0 - No process is on the other end of the pipe.)

It always happens after this query is executed during a page Load:

Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        myconnection = New SqlConnection("Data Source=.\SQLEXPRESS;AttachDbFilename=|DataDirectory|\Database.mdf;Integrated Security=True;User Instance=True")
        myda = New SqlDataAdapter("Select * from diaryDates", myconnection)
        myda.Fill(ds, "diaryDates")
    End Sub

What does the error mean and how can I resolve it ?

Report exported to Excel 2007 is EXTREMELY slow once a filter is applied.


I am exporting a 12,000 row, 20 column report to Excel from SSRS 2008.  Once opened in Excel, everything is fine.  If I further filter the data through Excel (no external data connections) performance degrades.  If I filter down to say 20 rows, it nearly completely bogs down my entire PC.  I've emailed this spreadsheet to several others, who then experience the same issue.

If I export this same set of data from a different BI tool, such as Microstrategy, there are no performance issues what so ever.
