I'm looking for a comprehensive guide to creating and using warm-up scripts for a SharePoint installation (WSS/MOSS).

How do i create one? What should be in it? What not? How does it get run after every app-pool recycle?

Andrew Connell has written one for 2007 and for 2010, they are pretty well received.

  • This MSDN blog has links to warmup script for SharePoint.
  • This Andrew Connell post has some guidance as well.
  • My favourite is this one that uses Powershell
