Scrolling through lists extremely slow

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 06, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
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

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

Extremely Slow Page Loads

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.

Form Display is very slow to display, (using large multi-select lists)

Hi, I am looking for some suggestions on how to speed up a few very slow forms. We have created some Leaver and Joiner type forms for our IT guys. They contain some lookup data , and we need to pick multiple values from a hidden list. Unfortunately this (Systems/Roles) list is large (3000 rows and growing). On a couple of forms there are 2 of these multi-select boxes, and things are getting pretty slow to display. Any suggestions? ---------- Background Info / things I have tried: The forms are based on Site content types and Site Columns. A set of 5 Combo boxes is slower than one Multi-select list. SPDesigner is available but I do not have Central Admin rights I am not alowed to write/install custom code on the server. (Visual Studio code / Codeplex code / extra Features etc) :-( I have had to resize the Multi-select list, so am using the SPServices JQuery call to make the multi-select box wide enough for the text. But this is extra overhead so I might have to back that out / replace with a fixed width for the multiselect box (if I can find it's id, so I can do that in Javascript). Filtering the Multi-select box is possible, but only after the page has initially loaded (it seems) (again I tried the SPServices Jquery call) The Company intend to add more Content types, so I am trying to avoid a custom Newform.aspx for each type (Leaver / New Joiner / Transfer/ C

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

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.

<%= Html.DisplayFor(item=>item.Property) %> extremely slow


I am passing a List with Model objects to my view and display them using

ORDER BY extremely slow in SQL 2008 R2


We have been running our databases on Server 2003/SQL 2005, and recently set up a new server running Server 2008 R2/SQL 2008 R2. For the most part, performance has been just fine. However, there is a particular query that runs quickly (<1 sec) on 2005, but very slowly (over 30 minutes!) on our new setup. The query is:

 SELECT CT.ClearingUniqueTradeID, TradeID From Polaris.Bridge.TradeClearingTrade TCT
 INNER JOIN [Polaris].[Clearing].[ClearingTrade] CT ON CT.ClearingTradeID = TCT.ClearingTradeID
 WHERE TradeDate = '2010-06-11'
 AND ClearingTradeStatusID = 4
 ORDER BY ClearingUniqueTradeID

The query returns about 20,000 rows. If we remove the ORDER BY, it runs in less than a second. I've run the Tuning Advisor against the query and it suggested a couple of indices - these make the query fast again, but I don't think that should be necessary merely to sort 20k rows of numerical values. SQL 2005 did fine without them.

I did apply CU4 to see if there were a

Displaying SharePoint lists in Web Parts

When you create a built-in or custom list in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services, Windows SharePoint Services creates a Web Part, a basic building block of a SharePoint site, to display that list. These Web Parts are called List View Web Parts. Windows SharePoint Services stores List View Web Parts in the site collection Web Part gallery. (The site collection Web Part gallery is the most central gallery of Web Parts for a work group. By default, the gallery name is the name of the site, such as "Our Team Site Web Part Gallery." )

SharePoint Tutorial - Lists

A list is a feature in SharePoint that stores a lists of information. For example, a list can be created to store web links in the human resources team site. A list is usually created for a specific type of information. Lists can contain metadata to describe the particular information in more detail and to make it easier to find.

Implementing Continuous Scrolling UI Pattern in ASP.NET

When you have numerous records to show, we have to resort to Paging. There is a better alternative to display voluminous data (especially read only data) while providing a better user experience & also making efficient use of server bandwidth - the Continuous Scrolling or Infinite Scrolling UI Pattern. Read on to know more about how to implement Continuous Scrolling UI Pattern in ASP.NET with a GridView.

Creating Sites/Lists/List Items under Current User Context in SharePoint By Using SPUserToken

Usually we do this by performing the action under RunWithElevatedPrivileges method and updating the listitem using SPListItem.SystemUpdate() method (see here). but this approach has its own flaws like (RunWithElevatedPrivileges will run under system account, we cannot use SystemUpdate for SPSite,SPWeb,SPList, since it runs under system we will "CreatedBy" by as SystemAccount).

Response.Redirect slow


I'm in the middle of migrating servers and on the new server Response.Redirect is extremely slow. It takes around 20 seconds for the browser to get the redirect. This is something that was quick on the existing server. It's an ASP.NET 2.0 application, both servers are running IIS6.

Additionally, if I "manually" do the redirect, it's fast. For example:

Existing way:


takes around 20 seconds on the new server

New way:

Response.Status = "302 Moved Temporarily";
Response.AddHeader("Location", url);

is fast on the new server.

Any ideas why Response.Redirect would be so slow on the new server?

VS 2010 Pro is slow



I was wondering if anybody else is finding VS 2010 extremely slow loading a solution - and it pretty much renders the rest of the machine useless until loaded. Everything is slowed to a halt.

I upgraded from VS 2005 - now I think I made a terrible mistake. I cannot afford to try and load 2 solutions simultaneously.

The machine is a Core2 Duo E8400, 3GB of RAM, WinXP SP3. Max I can go to is 4GB. Would upgrading to a 64-bit OS really be worth it (actually only to get 8GB of RAM)?

I'm hoping someone else has found a solution to this particular problem.

Forms based users being prompted for windows authentication login for My Sites photos in user lists

Here's an issue I didn't see coming for our forms based authentication users. 

We have a web application extended to an external url to handle forms based authentication for users outside of our domain. Our setup looks like this...

Internal Users/Windows Authentication - moss.domain.com
External Users/Forms Based - mossext.domain.com
My Site for Internal Users - mysites.domain.com

When our forms based users are accessing user lists, or discussion pages that display user pictures, they are getting a windows authentication login for our internal users (mysites.domain.com) who have populated their my site with personal photo.

How do we fix this?
