Warm Up Your SharePoint Servers


Found some cool scripts, that can “warm up” your SharePoint Servers, so first page hit doesn’t seem as slow as it usually does.

Ever thought things on ASP.NET were a bit slow the first time accessing them?  Many of you are aware that ASP.NET from a web admin perspective know that things have to recompile and things just aren’t as fast the first time.  In fact some times things are incredibly slow the first time and are incredibly slow.  Ever had users say, for some odd reason some times when I hit my SharePoint site it takes 30 seconds to load, then after a refresh it goes sub second, even clearing their cache the page is fast.  That’s because it’s not a user issue, its simply compiling, caching, etc… on the server after an IISReset or app pool reset or worker process cycle.

If you’re doing demos of an ASP.NET app such as WSS or SPS or Office SharePoint Server 2007, or you simply want your home page to load faster after an IISReset so it’s not your users hitting the page for the first time, you may be *very* interested in this post.
