Slow Project Server with Project Permission Mode RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a Project Server 2013 Installation with Project Server Permission Mode.

    The Sharepoint 2013 topology is composed of one application tier, one searh tier and two web fronts.

    The issue is that Project Server is responding slowly especially when it is about to :

    - logon

    - display security groups (AddModifyGroup.aspx).

    I enabled the development dashboard and I turned on network mon to follow any suspect communication but nothing seems to be related to this slowness.

    Any Help ?

  • Hello,

    What specs are the servers on each tier? Is the performance consistently slow?

  • Hi,

    One of the things you can try is to skip the load balancer (extend/AAM to one WFE only) and see if that would help speed the things. If that's the case then I would investigate the load balancer configuration

    Hope this helps

  • Hi,

    And another thing to check is Brian Smith's blog:

    It is related to project server 2010 but it is worth giving a try

  • You can also review the Hardware and Software requirements by verifying the datasets from

    Also please check if the Distributed Cache Service is running on the server where the Project Server Services are running

    You have also mentioned that Search is configured in the farm. Is Project Service running on the server where Search is configured? If Project Services is running on a server where Search Services is also running it would be good to check if the server is running out of memory when Crawl is running. (Look for noderunner.exe in Task Manager)
