Performance RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    does anybody know how the project server performance can be increased?

    Me, i´m not the administrator of the server.

    I just deliver templates, custom fields and so one.

    And i see that it takes too long for save, publish, close.

    Is there something that i can do from my side? Should i reduce custom fields to reduce the amount of information that has to be published?

  • Hello Olof,

    How long is too long? What are the specs of the servers in the farm? On average, how large are your project plans in terms of number of tasks / assignments / duration? Do smaller plans perform OK?

  • Hello Michael, thank you for your answer. Well, I don´t have an influence on this, because i can´t configure the anti-virus. But i keep this in mind. Olof

  • Hello Paul,

    thank you for your answer. The schedules have about 250 tasks including summary tasks. There are loops included so it starts with about 100 tasks and can be extended up to 250 tasks just by activate tasks.

    by screenrecord i could check the time. i only counted time of server work (save, publish, check-in) not how long it took me to edit or find the icons.

    change in the project details
    then save: 25 sec
    then switching to schedule
    publish 17
    check-in 6 sec
    total ~  48 sec

  • Hello Olof

    Those times don't look unreasonable to me. 

    Each night the IIS restarts and thus the first person on system will take much longer as processes are fired up and the cache are populated.  

    After the first save and publish, immediately save and publish again, is it much faster?
