Project server 201 Performance Monitoring RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We have deployed Microsoft Project 2010 server for one of out client. We want to make sure that the server is running efficiently and users do not get many errors when doing what they do.

    We decided that we would like to do like a monthly admin task to make sure that everything is running the way it is supposed to.

    The question i have is .. do anyone of you currently do something like that, and if yes, what would you check on the server to make sure it is running properly ... or look for potential problems. 

    What i am looking for is basic stuff like checking the queue to see if there are any failed jobs and if so clear those failed jobs... etc

  • Yes, you can configure windows performance monitoring counters as per the following article

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg715567.aspx

    There is no specific good or bad numbers since it depends on number factors. Best practice is to capture the data when performance of the application is as expected and set this as a baseline, when things goes wrong compare the current result with baseline information

    As data and usage of the application grows, you may need to re-visit update baseline perf counter numbers to monitor current environment.

    Remember these performance counters are in addition to standard  windows \database server monitoring.

    P.S If you have large sharepoint deployment you may need to review SharePoint Server 2010 performance counter information

  • As the system runs on top of SQL Server I would look at the different monitoring tasks related to the engine, the same with Sharepoint and IIS.

    There are heaps of daily weekly and monthly check lists out there for SQL Server that you maybe able to adopt.
