IIS Reset With SharePoint RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello SharePoint Fam,

    I am getting ready to roll out our SharePoint system to our 4,000 users and was wondering if iisreset's are okay to do......i was looking to possibly schedule a iisreset each morning around 6-7am before folks start to get in.  Sometimes when SharePoint has kind of been slow at times i've done a iisreset and site is back working perfect and speed is great so just wondering if there are any big risk by doing iisresets everyday in SharePoint environment each morning before folks start to arrive???  Or should i only go to iisreset in major bad situations and look to only recyclying app pools?

    Thanks n advance

  • An IISReset during non-business hours is fine.  However, if you don't have any users on during off hours the app pool should recycle on its own, but doing another reset at 6:00am before folks come in won't hurt anything.

  • Generally issuing an iisreset is not good for performance.  It eliminates the cached objects.  If you're having performance problems, look at increasing the amount of RAM available to the SharePoint server(s).

  • IIS Reset maybe too much. Personally I think all you need is a warmup script to restart all SharePoint services.

    Kindly look into the discussion on the link below. Hope it helps.
