Can I change Workflow Timer Interval value from default "every 5 minutes" to "every minutes" without impact to performace?
Thanks for supprt, Best regards
You will not be able to do this without at least a small impact on performance, and generally this is a bad idea. It is important to understand that when scheduling your timer jobs, if the previous job is still running it will skip a cycle. Since the scope of this setting is not just for the one workflow, you have to understand it can have far reaching impact. As that scheduled job starts taking more resources, it could negatively impact other timer jobs.
Some specific things to consider before making the change include:
If you have a particular workflow that requires near real-time processing, then it might be best to take a different approach.
Running something five time as often will off course have impact on the performance.
But it is only by measuring the performance prior to,and after, a change in the interval that you will now how much and in what ways. Because how your specific SharePoint installation is what really matters, therefor there is no single answer like "Yes by so and much".
