We recently worked on TFS 2010 Project Server 2010 integration using the TFS Project server integration feature pack that was launched recently. The performance of PWA has reduced highly after that. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Here is the complete detail scenario:

    System Configuration:

    It’s a Farm deployment with 2 way 2 physical systems. That is both the system has 2 Micro-processor with 4 cores each. Dell PowerEdge T710 supports Hyper Threading but Dell PowerEdge R710 does not support Hyper Threading.

    2*4=16 cores available on system

    System has been virtualized using VMware ESXI 4.1 Server; every physical system has two virtual systems with 4 cores dedicated to them with 150 GB HDD and dedicated gigabyte network card. The integration patch for TFS 2010 and project Server 2010 Has been installed.

    Issue with the system:

    Opening PWA page takes between 18 Sec. to 35 Sec, SharePoint sites opens up fast, if we open Project Center or drill down to any of the project it takes 30 Sec., but if we open project workspace site it opens up relatively fast.

    System 1(SQL Server):

     Windows 2008 R2 with SP1

    SQL Server 2008 R2 with SP1

    150 GB HD

    16 GB RAM

    Processor Intel Xeon(r) E5620 2.40 GHz 4 cores

    Gigabit Network Card

    System Dell PowerEdge T710

    System2 (App Server):

                    Windows 2008 R2 with SP1

                    SharePoint 2010 with SP1

                    Project Server 2010 with SP1

    150 GB HD

    16 GB RAM

    Processor Intel Xeon(r) E5504 2.0 GHz 4 cores

    Gigabit Network Card

    System Dell PowerEdge R710

     

    System3 (Web Front End):

                    Windows 2008 R2 with SP1

                    SharePoint 2010 with SP1

                    Project Server 2010 with SP1

    150 GB HD

    16 GB RAM

    Processor Intel Xeon(r) E5620 2.40 GHz 4 cores

    Gigabit Network Card

    System Dell PowerEdge R710

    System4 (TFS Server):

                    Windows 2008 R2 with SP1

                    SharePoint 2010 with SP1

                    TFS 2010 with SP1

    Project Server 2010 TFS 2010 Integration Patch

                    Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate 2010 with SP1

    150 GB HD

    16 GB RAM

    Processor Intel Xeon(r) E5504 2.0 GHz 4 cores

    Gigabit Network Card

    System Dell PowerEdge T710

    Could anyone please suggest if the degradation is due to the integration or could there be some other reason?

    Thanks!

  • It was actually an issue with the virtual environment and I was able to figure it out. I was just wondering if the integration could have an impact as well. But after resolving my virtualization issues, it seems to be working absolutley fine even with the integration in place.

  • I haven't seen a performance hit due to the TFS integration.  It should be just a few PSI calls.

    Take a look at the white paper on Project Server performance monitoring and see if that points you in the right direction.
