We have an new sharepoint 2013 site, Server Virtual and standalone , it has 12 gb ram. This sharepoint user interface extremely slow.
In Developer Dashboard we see each aspx page requests waiting about 6-7 second.
Have any idea ?
For driving SP 2013 with only 12 GB of RAM I recommend that you stop the search from doing continous crawls, and to stop any services that you do not plan to use. Otherwise you will ned a bit more memory.
The search continous crawl uses a massive amount of system resources, so in a low performance environment, it should be turned of if it is not extremely necessary for your purposes.
Also make sure that the virtual machine is allowed to use more than one processor core in your VM environment settings (This got me once in Hyper-V)
My problem solved! Have look at:
turn off distributed cache:
Site loading time with it off:
site loading time with it on:
Most likely because your machine doesn't have sufficient memory. SharePoint performance mostly depends on Hard disk and memory however SP 2013 is a memory beast, I don't think 12gb is enough if it's a single development server, check this article out,
I installed SharePoint 2013 on a single box along with 6gb and all I was able to do is to create a single site collection and since then it stopped working.
Since the problem is only when you try to access SharePoint in browser, you should enable Developer Dash board and check what factor is taking most time while page loads.
Enable it using PowerShell,
We had this problem on our farm - same exact issue - 6 second delay for EVERY PAGE. Distributed Cache is very buggy in some versions and may need patching (we are now on CU4, planning for CU5) as well as TLC from Microsoft Premier support.
